Abstract

Recent IUPAC (The International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry) recommendations on the terminology of metal-organic frameworks are reviewed and the background to a proposed topology classification is discussed. The various numerical designators such as point symbols, vertex symbols and transitivity are also explained and their importance elucidated. View Full-Text
