Abstract

This tutorial review describes recent research directed towards the synthesis of polymer-based organic microporous materials termed Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity (PIMs). PIMs can be prepared either as insoluble networks or soluble polymers with both types giving solids that exhibit analogous behaviour to that of conventional microporous materials such as activated carbons. Soluble PIMs may be processed into thin films for use as highly selective gas separation membranes. Preliminary results also demonstrate the potential of PIMs for heterogeneous catalysis and hydrogen storage.
