Abstract
Coordination polymers (CPs) are emerging as the next generation of macromolecules for many industrial and technological applications. The highly porous nature of these CPs offers the opportunity to exploit them as very effective adsorbents for gaseous molecules, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Release of VOCs into the environment is highly undesirable as they can be extremely harmful to general public health and environmental quality. Lately, a large volume of the scientific literature has pointed toward the potentially important role of CPs in the monitoring and analysis of VOCs, offering unprecedented detection limits. This review discusses the opportunities and challenges for the use of CP materials in such applications, describing their general working principles, analytical performance, advantages, and limitations. Recent progress in the application of CPs in the detection, monitoring, and analysis of VOCs is critically reviewed. The discussion is further extended to cover future applications and current research activities in this emerging analytical field. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
