In recent years, the synthesis of mixed-metal and mixed-linker metal–organic frameworks with multiple metals and/or linker molecules combined in one framework has become a growing field of interest. These mixed-component or multivariate metal–organic framework materials provide the possibility to introduce multiple functionalities inside one framework. The interaction of guest molecules with different functionalities in the same material is a promising approach in the fields of gas storage, separation, catalysis and drug delivery. Furthermore, the combination of different components may lead to synergistic effects that cannot be achieved otherwise. These mixed-component approaches open up new pathways to an even larger range of possible customizations in the field of metal–organic frameworks. © 2019 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
