A promising monolayer membrane for oxygen separation from harmful gases: nitrogen-substituted polyphenylene

Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate that N-substitutional doping dramatically reduces the diffusion barrier for oxygen passing through the pores of polyphenylene, leading to a massive enhancement in O2 selectivity over various harmful gases with excellent permeance at appropriate temperatures for O2 across an N-doped polyphenylene in a unit cell.
