Progress in the synthetic and functional aspects of chiral metal–organic frameworks

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this highlight, two aspects of chiral metal–organic frameworks, in particular synthetic approaches to achieve chiral MOFs and their applications, have been discussed. There has been considerable research advancement towards the synthesis of chiral MOFs by direct or indirect methods. More recently, homochiral MOFs have been exploited for valued applications such as asymmetric catalysis, enantioselective separation and recognition processes. Each part is subdivided with regard to the issues focused on and provides seminal as well as recent reports from the literature.
