Abstract

Self-assembly is a potent synthetic tool that allowed chemists to design numerous complex structures, supramolecules of various shapes from relatively simple starting materials. Metal-organic polyhedra are a rising and promising member of the self-assembled supramolecule family possessing fascinating structures and functionalities directly deriving from the precursor units. During the last two decades, research in this field has been briskly progressed and it is now objective to exemplify various applications such as biomedical, catalysis, molecular sensing, gas adsorption and separation, and synthesis of metal-organic frameworks from polyhedra. This review will be focus on each and every application with various unprecedented examples and highlight few challenges still need to be address.
