Abstract

Coordination polymers (CPs) and/or metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have been a hot research topic over the past two decades. Many CPs structures based on p-, d-, f- and some s-block metal ions, including magnesium (Mg), have been reported. While not as common in the literature as some other metals, magnesium-based CPs have unique potential applications, largely because of the specific properties of the Mg metal. Mg-CPs can possess high gravimetric gas storage capacities due to the metal's low density, can facilitate base-catalyzed reactions as a result of its strong Lewis acidity, and have shown high performance as electrode materials due to its high-density energy storage capacity. This review intends to provide an overview on the research related to Mg-CPs in the past twenty years. We will briefly describe various structural features, important properties, and potential applications of the Mg-CPs reported during this time period. A number of representative examples will be discussed for each type of important application.
