Covalent organic frameworks (COFs), a variety of crystalline porous materials composed of light elements, have attracted considerable attention in the past decade because of their versatile applications in gas storage and separation, catalysis, sensing, drug delivery, and electronic devices. Compared to other porous materials, COFs allow for atomically precise control of their architectures by changing the structure of their building blocks, whereby the shapes and sizes of their pores can be well tuned. This book is a compilation of different topics of COF research, from COF design and synthesis, crystallization, and structural linkages, to the theory of gas sorption and various applications such as heterogeneous catalysts and energy storage (e.g., semiconductors and batteries). It is a good textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students of nanotechnology and researchers exploring new materials of gas adsorption and storage, heterogeneous catalysts, electronic devices, and biomedical devices .
