In a decade, many porous coordination polymers have been synthesized, providing a variety of properties ranging from storage, separation, exchange of guests in their cavities, magnetism, conductivity and catalysis by their frameworks. In this tutorial review, we focus on the hydrogen bonding type arrangements for dynamic porous coordination polymers exhibiting elastic guest accommodations, in contrast to rigid three-dimensional (3-D) frameworks. Such dynamic porous properties induce highly-selective guest accommodation and magnetic modulation, and could now be considered a new class of practical materials.
