Over the last 10 years or so, the interest and number of high-pressure studies has increased substantially. One area of growth within this niche field is in the study of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs or coordination polymers). Here we present a review on the subject, where we look at the structural effects of both non-porous and porous MOFs, and discuss their mechanical and chemical response to elevated pressures.
