Gas storage and separation are closely associated with the alleviation of greenhouse effect, the widespread use of clean energy, the control of toxic gases, and various other aspects in human society. In this review, we highlight the recent advances in gas storage and separation using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). In addition to summarizing the gas uptakes of some benchmark MOFs, we emphasize on the desired chemical properties of MOFs for different gas storage/separation scenarios. Greenhouse gases (CO2), energy-related gases (H2 and CH4), and toxic gases (CO and NH3) are covered in the review.
