The synthesis and properties of conjugated microporous polymers (CMP) based on alkyne building blocks are reviewed. The formed species are fascinating materials of indigenous porosity; the CMPs are extremely air, water, and temperature stable and they are also chemically robust and promise applications as catalysts, catalyst scaffolds, and gas storage moduli. The accessibility of a large number of different building blocks makes the amorphous CMPs also fascinating study objects from a structural and synthetic stand point.
