[3+3] Imine and β-ketoenamine tethered fluorescent covalent-organic frameworks for CO2 uptake and nitroaromatic sensing

Two imine and β-ketoenamine linked [3+3] robust, porous and fluorescent covalent-organic frameworks, synthesized by solvothermal methods, have been found to be efficient for CO2 capture and detection of polynitroaromatic compounds.

About this collection

We are delighted to present the web collection inspired by the 5th Interdisciplinary Symposium on Materials Chemistry which was jointly organised by the Society for Materials Chemistry (SMC) and the Chemistry Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), India in December 2014. The web collection is guest edited by Dr V. K. Jain and Dr R. K. Vatsa.
