The reticular frameworks have crystalline and extended porous structures, which can not only orderly organize a variety of building blocks to form mesoscopic materials in a programmable way, but also perform an excellent platform for basic scientific research because of the regulatable and precise structures. The representative systems of reticular frameworks are metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs). Mechanically interlocked structures are molecular aggregations interacted through mechanical bond to realize complex functions. The combination of reticular frameworks and mechanically interlocked structures can promote the basic research of the microscopic interlocked behaviors in solid states; and also organize the interlocked structures in a regular way to achieve more complex functions. The mechanically interlocked structures can be introduced into reticular frameworks in two strategies, using mechanically interlocked structures as building blocks participating in the construction of reticular frameworks; and forming woven or interlocked frameworks with whole interlocked skeleton from unlocked precursors. This review summarizes the important progresses in the emerging research field combining the reticular frameworks and mechanically interlocked structures. In the first section, after the brief introduction of reticular frameworks and mechanically interlocked structures respectively, the significances and strategies of the combination of the above two fields is described. In the second section, we reveal the systematic and representative research of mechanically interlocked structure as a part of building blocks participating in the construction of reticular frameworks, including rotaxane, shuttle and catenate. The mechanical motions of rotaxanes and shuttle within MOFs are intensively studied. The representative methods and structures of introducing rotaxane or catenate into reticular frameworks are presented. In the third section, we exhibit the reticular frameworks constructed through mechanical bond as the main interaction within the whole skeleton from unlocked precursors, including resilient woven frameworks and mechanically interlocked frameworks. The typical woven or interlocked frameworks are mostly templated from special metal complexes and showing reversible transition between crystal and non-crystal maintaining the whole interlocked skeleton. Finally, we summarize the whole paper and discuss the future development in this crossing field, such as the applications of these combined systems should be expanded and the mechanically interlocked frameworks constructed through interlocking discrete molecular rings are expected due to the potential excellent elastic properties.

Key words: metal organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks, mechanically interlocked structures, resilient woven frameworks, mechanically interlocked frameworks
