About this collection

We are delighted to share with you a selection of the papers which will be presented at our Faraday Discussion on New directions in porous crystalline materials taking place in Edinburgh, UK in June 2017. More information about the event may be found here: http://rsc.li/porous-fd2017. Additional articles will be added to the collection as they are published. The final versions of all the articles presented and a record of the live discussions will be published after the event.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), and related molecular porous materials have entered a stage where not just the porosity, but other physical attributes are now playing a major role in their properties. Catalytic properties rivalling those of classic heterogeneous catalysts are being unearthed by carefully engineering isolated active sites in the pores. Photophysical properties enabled by both the rigidity and the controlled dynamics of the porous environment are making strides from both fundamental and applied perspectives. Applications in energy storage are emerging as well, enabled by important advances in increasing the electrical and ionic conductivity in these materials to values that rival and even surpass those of organic semiconductors. Exciting magnetic properties are being reported in such materials with increasing frequency as well, suggesting that perhaps porous magnets and possibly superconductors are also within reach. This Discussion thus focuses on several important new directions in the chemistry of porous crystalline materials and will attempt to distil converging themes.
