Definition and Classification of PCP/MOF

What are PCPs/MOFs? – Definition

Coordination Polymer

Definition
A coordination compound with repeating coordination entities extending in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions.

Coordination Network

Definition
A coordination compound extending, through repeating coordination entities, in 1 dimension, but with cross-links between two or more individual chains, loops, or spiro-links, or a coordination compound extending through repeating coordination entities in 2 or 3 dimensions.

Metal Organic Framework (MOF)

Definition
A metal–organic framework, abbreviated to MOF, is a coordination network with organic ligands containing potential voids. 
= Porous coordination polymer (PCP).
