Porous Polymers

Porous polymers

Porous polymers are materials with pores, cavities or interstices able to trap guests. They are usefull for many application such as gas storage and separation, catalysis, ancapsulation for controlled drug release and so on. Here we study metal oligomers able to self-assembly in 3D porous systems wich show permanent porosity. Also covalent organic polymers have been synthesized and their stability havebeen checked with high pressure methane adsorption (up to 180 bar).
