Covalent organic frameworks (COFs), a new type of crystalline porous materials, have attracted considerable attention in many fields such as separation, catalysis, drug release, and optoelectronics. The crystallinity and morphology of COFs determine their application. In this study, the synthetic methods and applications of COFs with different morphologies (spherical, thin film, rod, tubular, fibrous, belt, cage, and roll) are reviewed. Existing problems are also discussed and their potential solutions are proposed.

Key words: Morphology controllable, Covalent organic frameworks, Synthesis, Application
