Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) with high specific surface areas and pre-designed structures have been extensively studied during the past decades. However, the difficulties in processing MOFs and COFs have largely hampered their practical applications. Herein, we describe nanoengineering approaches for the preparation of freestanding MOF/COF nanocomposites with the assistance of cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) via interweaving and interfacial synthesis methods. The obtained MOF/COF-CNFs nanocomposites can be processed into freestanding nanopapers and aerogels. Their applications in flexible energy storage, energy harvesting, air cleaning, thermal insulation and fire retardancy will be also discussed.
