Abstract: Porous metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) represent a new type of functional materials and have recently become a hot research field due to their great potential in various applications. In this review, recent progress of gas adsorption applications of porous MOFs, mainly including hydrogen storage, methane storage, and selective gas adsorption will be briefly summarized.
