Photocatalytic applications of conjugated microporous polymers
Conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs) represent an emerging new class of porous materials that display high stability, low toxicity, and strong visible-light activity. These unique characteristics of CMPs enable their wide potential uses as a new generation of heterogeneous photocatalysts for both laboratory and scale-up applications. Here we review the most recent developments of CMPs-based photocatalytic systems. We discuss the synthetic control of the composition, structure, optoelectronic properties of CMPs that relate to their photocatalytic activities toward both organic and inorganic transformations, including artificial photosynthesis.
