Inorganic framework solids are no longer limited to just the silicates and phosphates. Recent research has revealed that carboxylates, arsenates, sulfates, selenates, selenites, germanates, phosphites can also form such structures. One of the emerging areas combines the rich coordination chemistry of the central metal ions of many of these structures with the flexibility and functionality of the organic linkers to give rise to organic–inorganic hybrid compounds. The compounds of the transition-metals appear to provide many variations arising from their coordination preferences, ligand geometry,and the valence state. In addition, the combination of the magnetic nature of the transition metal center with the channel structure of open frameworks suggests interesting potential applications. In this Review the synthesis, structures and properties of the various transition-metal open-framework compounds are discussed.
