Strategies for the synthesis of frameworks materials based upon either coordination bonds or hydrogen-bonding interactions are described. The utilization of coordinate bonds for the construction of coordination frameworks is presented describing not only strategies for controlling framework structure but also illustrating how such networks can be used for applications in the storage of guest species, such as H2. The exploitation of hydrogen-bonding for generating self-assembled surface arrays is also described, again illustrating controlled molecular entrapment for nanostructure fabrication.
