A review on metal-organic framework: synthesis, properties and application

Sanju Soni 1, Parmendra Kumar Bajpai 2, Charu Arora 2


 Metal organic framework is a class of hybrid network of supramolecular solid materials comprised of a large number of inorganic and organic linkers all bounded to metal ions in a well organised fashion. This type of compounds possess a greater surface area with an advantage of changing pore sizes, diversified and beautiful structure which withdrew an intense interest in this field. In the present review article structural aspects; classification; methods of synthesis; various factors affecting the synthesis and stability; properties and applications have been discussed. Recent advances in the field and new directions to explore the future scope and applications of MOFs have been incorporated to provide current status of the field.
