The possibility of engineering well-defined pores into liquid materials is fascinating from both a conceptual and an applicational point of view. Although the concept of porous liquids was proposed in 2007, these materials had remained hypothetical due to the technical challenges associated with their synthesis. Over the past five years, however, reports of the successful construction of porous liquids based on existing porous scaffolds, such as coordination cages, organic cages, metal-organic frameworks, porous carbons, zeolites, and porous polymers have started to emerge. In this progress report, we will focus on these early reports of porous liquids as prototypes in the field, classified according to the previously defined types of porous liquids. Particular attention will be paid to design strategies and structure-property relationships. Porous liquids have already exhibited promising applications in gas storage, transportation, and chemical separations and thus they show great potential for use in the chemical industry. The challenges of preparation, scale-up, volatility, thermal and chemical stability, and competition with porous solids will also be discussed.
