Covalent Organic Frameworks

1st Edition

Atsushi Nagai
January 24, 2020

Rational synthesis of extended arrays of organic matter in bulk, solution, crystals, and thin films has always been a paramount goal of chemistry. The classical synthetic tools to obtain long-range regularity are, however, limited to noncovalent interactions, which usually yield structurally more...
