Terminology of Metal-Organic Frameworks and Coordination Polymers

A set of terms, definitions and recommendations is provided for use in the classification of coordination polymers, networks and metal-organic frameworks. A hierarchical terminology is recommended where the most general term is coordination polymer. Coordination networks are a subset of coordination polymers and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) a further subset of coordination networks. One of the criteria a MOF needs to fulfill is that it contains potential voids but no physical measurements of porosity or other properties are demanded per se. The use of topology and topology descriptors to enhance the description of crystal structures of MOFs and 3D-coordination polymers is furthermore strongly recommended.
