Title: Hierarchically porous metal–organic frameworks: synthetic strategies and applications

Abstract

Abstract Despite numerous advantages, applications of conventional microporous MOFs are hampered by their limited pore sizes, such as in heterogeneous catalysis and guest delivery which usually involves large molecules. Construction of hierarchically porous metal–organic frameworks (HP-MOFs) is vital to achieve the controllable augmentation of MOF pore size to mesopores or even macropores, which can enhance the diffusion kinetics of guests and improve the storage capacity. This review article focuses on recent methodology advances of HP-MOF synthesis, covering preparation of HP-MOFs with intrinsic hierarchical pores, and modulated, templated and template-free synthetic strategies for HP-MOFs. The key factors which affect the formation of HP-MOF architectures are summarized and discussed, which is followed by a brief review of their applications in heterogeneous catalysis and guest encapsulation. Overall, this review shall present a roadmap that guides the future design and development of HP-MOF materials with molecular precision and mesoscopic complexity.
