Polymerization in MOF-Confined Nanospaces: Tailored Architectures, Functions, and Applications

Begum, Salma; Hassan, Zahid; Bräse, Stefan; Tsotsalas, Manuel

This feature article describes recent trends and advances in structuring network polymers using a coordination-driven metal–organic framework (MOF)-based template approach to demonstrate the concept of crystal-controlled polymerization in confined nanospaces, forming tailored architectures ranging from simple linear one-dimensional macromolecules to tunable three-dimensional cross-linked network polymers and interwoven molecular architectures. MOF-templated network polymers combine the characteristics and advantages of crystalline MOFs (high porosity, structural regularity, and designability) with the intrinsic behaviors of soft polymers (flexibility, processability, stability, or biocompatibility) with widespread application possibilities and tunable properties. The article ends with a summary of the remaining challenges to be addressed, and future research opportunities in this field are discussed.
