Probing Isoreticular Expansions in Phosphonate MOFs and their Applications

Tholen, Patrik; Zorlu, Yunus; Beckmann, Jens; Yücesan, Gündoğ

This review is divided into three different parts. In the introduction, the current applications of metal‐organic frameworks (MOFs) are shown. Furthermore, the overall stability, a comparison of phosphonate MOFs with carboxylate MOFs, the structural richness of phosphonate MOFs with the challenge in synthesis and different linker geometries is discussed. In the second part, several phosphonate MOFs with Y‐shaped planar, X‐shaped planar, and X‐shaped tetrahedral linker systems are described. The final part discusses different structures of inorganic building units (IBUs) with different metal atoms and a comparison of the formed MOF structures.
