The chemistry of metal-organic frameworks (MOF) is intensively developed during the recent years. Such compounds form unique porous structures and demonstrate very interesting functional properties: selective sorption and magnetic, catalytic, luminescence, and many other characteristics. The most part of the studied MOF is homometallic. The heterometallic MOF are studied to a lower extent. Nevertheless, the introduction of a heterometal makes it possible to purposefully modify the properties of the already known structures and also to prepare basically new structures. The results of studies of the synthesis methods of the heterometallic MOF are generalized and reviewed. The main structural types of these compounds and their functional properties are considered.
