Covalent organic frameworks (COFs), as highly porous crystalline structures, are newly emerging materials designed with tuneable features. They have a high potential to be a host to immobilize metal catalysts. The unique property of these materials, such as their high surface area, oriented channels, and heteroatom enrichment, make them promising materials to improve some disadvantages of heterogeneous metal catalysts. In this review, the fabrication and application of Pd anchored COFs as one of the most critical transition-metal catalysts that play a crucial role in a wide range of reactions is summarized.
