A Spirobifluorene-Based Polymer of Intrinsic Microporosity with Improved Performance for Gas Separation



original image

A highly gas-permeable polymer with enhanced selectivities is prepared using spirobifluorene as the main structural unit. The greater rigidity of this polymer of intrinsic microporosity (PIM-SBF) facilitates gas permeability data that lie above the 2008 Robeson upper bound, which is the universal performance indicator for polymer gas separation membranes.
