Installing transition metals on macromolecular scaffolds is a proven strategy to access functional materials. A metal center, for instance, exhibits a coordination chemistry that enables sequestering of ligands such as carbon dioxide. The catalytic function of transition metals is well-established and now extends into the heterogeneous catalysis landscape via incorporation of these metals into macromolecules. Also, researchers are intensively exploring the redox activity and magnetic properties of transition-metal-containing macromolecules to design data storage technologies. Using selected examples, we discuss the research and development that installed transition metals into macromolecular frameworks to design platforms for carbon dioxide capture, catalysis, and data storage.
