Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) have attracted considerable interest in the field of rechargeable batteries owing to their three-dimensional (3D) varied pore sizes, inerratic porous structures, abundant redox-active sites, and customizable structure-adjustable frameworks. In the context of metal-ion batteries, these materials play a vital role in electrode materials, effectively addressing critical issues such as low ionic conductivity, limited specific capacity, and unstable structural integrity. However, the electrochemical characteristics of the developed COFs still fall short of practical battery requirements due to inherent issues such as low electronic conductivity, the tradeoff between capacity and redox potential, and unfavorable micromorphology. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the recent advancements in the application of COFs, COF-based composites, and their derivatives in rechargeable metal-ion batteries, including lithium-ion, lithium-sulfur, sodium-ion, sodium-sulfur, potassium-ion, zinc-ion, and other multivalent metal-ion batteries. The operational mechanisms of COFs, COF-based composites, and their derivatives in rechargeable batteries are elucidated, along with the strategies implemented to enhance the electrochemical properties and broaden the range of their applications.
