Porous Polymers: Design, Synthesis and ApplicationseBook - 2015
Intended as an overview of recent developments in the synthesis, characterization and application of organic-framework-based nanoporous polymers, which are often considered as ideal host materials for applications including selective separation, gas storage, and carriers of catalysts, the authors aim to help those interested in porous polymers gain a better understanding of some key principles and challenges regarding same. Their focus is limited to polymers synthesized by concave-like monomers, which lead to high international molecular free volumes. Distributed in the US by Ingram Publisher Services.

Porous materials with ultrahigh surface area are of great interest for potential applications in energy storage and environmental remediation. Porous Polymers describes the significant recent progress in the development of different porous frameworks, with a particular focus on the relationship between structure design, synthesis method and properties.
The book starts with an introduction to porous materials and their functions followed by chapters looking at the design of porous polymers, synthesis methods of porous polymers (reversible methods, irreversible methods, copolymerization methods and self-polymerization methods); characterisation of porous polymer structures and post-synthesis techniques of porous polymers (lithiation, sulphonation, carbonization, grafting). Specific chapters then detail different porous materials systems such as conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs); covalent organic frameworks (COFs); hyper-crosslinked polymers (HCPs); polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs); and porous aromatic frameworks (PAFs).
Written by active researchers in the field, the book provides a comprehensive overview of different porous polymer systems for researchers and graduate students in chemistry and materials science working on novel materials and those interested in the energy and environmental applications.
