Porous, Fluorescent, Covalent Triazine-Based Frameworks Via Room-Temperature and Microwave-Assisted Synthesis



original image

Porous, fluorescent, covalent triazine-based frameworks (CTFs) are obtained in an unprecedentedly mild reaction, opening up a scalable pathway for molecular building blocks previously thought incompatible with this chemistry. Choice of monomers and synthetic conditions determines the optical properties and nano-scale ordering of these highly microporous materials with BET surface areas exceeding 1100 m2 g−1 and exceptional CO2 capacities (up to 4.17 mmol g−1).
