Interpenetrating metal–organic frameworks

Author affiliations


Interpenetration usually refers to two or more individual polymeric networks with the same or different components catenated with each other, which is a frequently observed phenomenon in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). The interpenetrating metal–organic frameworks (IMOFs) show fascinating architectures and topologies, as well as exhibit improved functions and applications. In this highlight, we summarize the recent advances in IMOFs, including homo- and hetero-IMOFs.
