Introduction

Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) are a family of materials that can be porous, stable, and crystalline and can be formed into two- or three-dimensional structures through interactions between organic precursors. Due to their predictable topologies and organized nano pores, Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) are becoming more and more popular for use in gas storage, separation, electronics, and catalytic applications [1].

A class of crystalline porous organic polymers with persistent porosity and highly organized structures are known as Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs). The fact that COFs can be structurally predesigned, synthetically controlled, and functionally managed distinguishes them from other polymers. The poly condensation processes offer synthetic techniques to build the predesigned primary and high-order structures, and the topological design diagram provides geometric guidance for the structural tiling of extended porous polygons. The foundation of the COF field was clearly laid by advancements made in the chemistry of these two features over the previous ten years. Due to the accessibility of organic building blocks and the variety of topologies and connections, COFs have become a brand-new class of organic materials that provide a strong molecular foundation for the creation of complicated structural designs and specialized functional advancements [2].

Description

We briefly discussed the applications of COFs in a variety of domains, including gas storage and separation, catalysis, optoelectronics, sensing, small molecule adsorption, and drug administration, after introducing the main connections of COFs.

•A very interesting class of nonporous materials is covalent organic frameworks, and 3D COFs, which have asignificantly greater interior surface area than their 2D counterparts, are particularly appealing forapplications including gas storage, gas separation, and catalysis [3].
•The disadvantages of COFs in electrochemical applications, such as their comparatively small pores, whichhinder mass transport, and their relatively low conductivity, which results in reduced charge carrier mobility,will also be explored.

Metal and carbon atoms are both present in a substance known as a metal organic, but there is no covalent bond between the two. Lithium acetate contains no carbon metal link. Metal and carbon atoms are both present in a substance known as a metal organic, but there is no covalent bond between the two. Lithium acetate contains no carbon-metal link [4].

Examples: Silver nitrate, calcium chloride, and sodium chloride.

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are organic-inorganic hybrid materials with crystalline pores that are made up of a predictable arrangement of positively charged metal ions encircled by organic "linker" molecules. The metal ions act as nodes, connecting the linkers arms to create a repeating, cage like structure. The internal surface area of MOFs is incredibly vast because of their hollow structure. Researchers have created MOFs with a surface area per gram of around 7800 square meters. To put this into perspective, a teaspoon of this substance, or around one gram of solid, has enough surface area to fill an entire soccer field. The cage like structure of MOFs is being exploited for numerous applications in diverse disciplines, including gas storage and separation, liquid separation and purification, electrochemical energy storage, catalysis, and sensing. MOFs have been employed as special precursors for the creation of inorganic functional materials with unmatched design potential, such as carbons, metal-based compounds, and their composites, in addition to their direct applications. The wide range of uses for carbonaceous materials, such as in adsorption, catalysis, batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, drug administration, and imaging, is currently generating a lot of attention. Because they are intimately tied to human health, several sensors are also among the crucial uses for carbonaceous materials [5].

Conclusion

Metal containing substances that lack direct metal-carbon bonds but nonetheless contain organic ligands are referred to as "metal organic compounds." Representatives of this class include metal phosphine complexes, metal diketonates, alkoxides, dialkylamides, and metal diketones.
