Soluble Two-dimensional Supramolecular Organic Frameworks (SOFs): An Emerging Class of 2D Supramolecular Polymers with Internal Long-range Orders
- 202 Downloads
Two-dimensional (2D) materials have been demonstrated to exhibit unique properties originating from its 2D nature. In recent years, the construction of 2D materials has become a topic of great interest. This article summarizes the recent advance of 2D supramolecular organic frameworks (SOFs) which are homogeneously constructed in solution phase through self-assembly of rationally designed building blocks. These 2D SOFs are soluble and still maintain stable network structures in solutions, which exhibit uniqueness not only in structures but also in properties. In this concise review, the SOFs-related background is briefly introduced firstly, followed by outlining the research progress of soluble 2D SOFs from the perspective of monomer design, assembly, and structural characterization. The article ends with a personal outlook on the future development of this new class of supramolecular polymers.
