I did miss this interesting paper by Kumar Biradha, Arunachalam Ramanan and Jagadese J. Vittal
Lets not also forget the paper by Richard Robson
Both great works addressing the pros and cons in this field of every growing acronyms.
We should start a list of acronyms and see how long the list can be.
CPs: Coordination Polymers
PCPs: Porous Coordination Polymers
MOFs: Metal-organic Frameworks
MOMs: Metal-organic Materials
When we have built up enough acronyms I will start a document that should have references to the orginal use of the term.
Please if you submit an acronym, include the citation.
Thanks for this, and for starting the acronym list.
The task group now has a paper out in CrystEngComm summarizing the work so far:
Coordination polymers, metal–organic frameworks and the need for terminology guidelines

The task group is currently writing up recommendations to be published in Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC's official journal). A preview of these recommendations will be presented at the MOF 2012 conference in Edinburgh (see http://events.dechema.de/events/en/mof2012.html) and at the ICCC in Valencia (see http://iccc40.com/).
Provisional Recommendations Under Review can now be accessed on IUPACs website:

Thanks for posting these notes. The final IUPAC recommendations are now online in the August edition of Pure and Applied Chemistry (http://pac.iupac.org/publications/pac/pdf/2013/pdf/8508x1715.pdf). At least 2000 scientist has viewed the material and around 100 has interacted with the task group. Thanks to you all. Some topology issues remain to be resolved and these will hopefully be dealt with in a forthcoming project. Other issues in crystal engineering is currently being looked over by a task group chaired by
