Abstract

The design and synthesis of molecular container compounds is playing an important role in host–guest chemistry. Porous organic molecular cages (OMCs), as an exciting type of molecular container compound, have attracted intensive attention in the past few decades. They are constructed through covalent bonds, and can be synthesized in reasonable yield by making use of dynamic covalent chemistry. Furthermore, they can pack to form crystalline materials with void spaces, which show promising applications in gas absorption and molecular separation. In this article, we highlight the state-of-the-art development in the synthesis, functionalization and application of OMCs.
