Porphyrins have been widely used to construct new photocatalytic and photosensitizing materials because of their strong absorption of visible light. The photophysical and photochemical properties of porphyrin units could be easily modulated in frameworks materials, with the aid of the large surface area and tunable pore structure of the frameworks, leading to an improved photocatalytic quantum yield and selectivity. In this review, the recent advances of porphyrin-based frameworks materials, including metal organic framework materials (MOFs) and covalent organic framework materials (COFs) as well as covalent organic polymers (COPs) have been briefly summarized in the field of photocatalysis. Moreover, the key problems faced by designing high-performance porphyrin-based photocatalysts were analyzed in order to give some advice for the future development.

Key words: porphyrin, metal organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks, photocatalysis
