This article provides an overview on preparation, design, crystal structure and properties of some metal-organic frameworks of carboxylate coordination polymers mixed with pyridine-functionality linkers prepared in our laboratory. The article covers coordination polymers in two- and three-dimensional supramolecular architectures. The reported coordination polymers exhibit interesting structural features for cobalt and nickel centers. They also show various physical properties together with high thermal stabilities, which candidate them for a wide range of applications. Moreover, one of the frameworks was used as a precursor for preparation of metal oxide nanoparticles with sizes of about 35-45 nm.
