Conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs) with controlled specific surface area have been prepared through Sonogashira–Hagihara cross-coupling reactions in the presence of silica nanoparticles as templating agents. The CMPs act as heterogeneous photosensitizers for producing singlet oxygen in a continuous flow synthesis (see picture).
