Abstract

original image

Poring over polymers: Highly porous polymers with hierarchical macro- and mesoporous structures were synthesized by using the title method and UV radiation. The porosity properties of the polymers can be easily tuned by controlling the CO2 pressure used, and the polymers have potential applications in catalysis. IL=ionic liquid, PAM=polyacrylamide.
