Abstract

original image

Well-ordered mesoporous iron silicates that have an ultralarge pore diameter and high Fe content are stable, active, and reusable catalysts for the synthesis of poly(methyleneanthracene) (PMAn) by polymerization of anthracene inside the nanopores. In their Communication on page 2859 ff., E. Kim, A. Vinu, and co-workers report that the physical and optical properties of PMAn can be controlled by tuning the pore diameter and the iron content of the mesoporous catalysts.
