In recent years, chiral microporous materials with open pores have attracted much attention because of their potential applications in enantioselective separation and catalysis. This review summarizes the recent advances on chiral microporous materials, such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), hydrogen-bonded organic frameworks (HOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs). We will introduce the synthetic strategies in detail and highlight the current status of chiral microporous materials on solid enantioselective adsorption, chiral chromatography resolution and membrane separation.
