Polymers of intrinsic microporosity as high temperature templates for the formation of nanofibrous oxides

Author affiliations

Abstract

The highly rigid molecular structure of Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity (PIM) – associated with a high thermolysis threshold – combined with the possibility to fill intrinsic micropores allows the direct “one-step” templated conversion of metal nitrates into nano-structured metal oxides. This is demonstrated here with PIM-EA-TB and with PIM-1 for the conversion of Pr(NO3)3 to Pr6O11.
