Abstract

The chemistry of coordination polymers has been extensively advanced in recent decades, producing various architectures that are rationally constructed from a variety of molecular building blocks and interactions between them. Researchers have worked to create a diverse range of coordination frameworks and have raised the structural chemistry to a mature level. The next challenge is to explore their chemical and physical functionalities, which are associated with the microporous properties of frameworks. This review focuses on crystal structures and microporous properties of coordination polymers containing organic N-containing heterocyclic molecules as bridging ligands.
