Branching out with aminals: microporous organic polymers from difunctional monomers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Microporous organic polymers (MOPs) have been prepared via one-pot polycondensation reactions between aldehydes and amines. Primary amines were reacted with imines to produce porous polymers from A2 + B2 monomer combinations. The resulting networks exhibit BET surface areas in the range 500–600 m2 g−1. This approach opens up the possibility of synthesising MOPs using readily-available and inexpensive precursors.
