  Abstract  
  The chemistry of the nanotubes and nanotubular materials have in recent years advanced extensively, affording various architectures, and the next challenge is constrcuting nanotubes in metal-organic frameworks. This review covers a comprehensive discussion on the plentiful developments in the field of metal-organic nanotubes (MONTs), in particular those representative research results. The discussion of a rich collection of structural motifs concerns on 3D open frameworks with tubular channels (units), tubular channals formed by 2D layer frameworks and 1D metal-organic nanotubes. The 1D metal-organic nanotubes have been classified into three catalogues: 1D finite MONTs, 1D interpenetrating/interlocked infinite MONTs, and 1D independent infinite MONTs. Some new field of inspiration such as chiral MONTs and magnetic MONTs are highlighted. Our aim is to present the state of the nanotubes in the metal-organic frameworks.
