报告题目: Microporous polymer net- and frameworks for catalysis and energy applications
报告人：德国柏林工业大学Arne Thomas 教授
Microporous Polymer Networks (MPNs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are emerging new classes of functional porous materials, which combine several advantages of organic materials with conventional porous matter, like zeolites, activated charcoals or metal organic frameworks. MPNs and COFs exhibit exceptionally high porosities and surface areas, while their covalent nature ensures sufficient thermal and chemical stability. Furthermore, as solely composed of organic compounds an exquisite control over the chemical nature of the large accessible surface areas as well as their physical properties is possible. These features make MPNs and COFs interesting for emerging applications such as energy storage and conversion but also as precursor for advanced carbon materials for electrochemical devices.Furthermore, MPNs and COFs open new prospects in the field of catalysis, as various functional groups and catalytic active sites can be introduced as maintaining parts of the polymer backbones, which thus can be applied in fields from organocatalysis to photocatalysis. Also recently emerging MPNs and COFs with permanent ionic charges in the organic backbone are of interest for diverse applications, as their properties can be tailored by simple ion exchange.
