Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs) represent a growing field of materials that are receiving widespread attention due to their fascinating structures, intriguing properties, and applications across many disciplines. This review seeks to demonstrate the scope of MOF chemistry which uses the full breadth of the periodic table, whether those elements act as the metals that form the connecting nodes of the MOF, the ligands that link those metal-based nodes or the guests that sit in the MOF pores.
