RETICULAR SYNTHESIS OF POROUS MOLECULAR 1D NANOTUBES AND 3D NETWORKS

2017

Porous molecular crystals have desirable properties, but are hard to form with the level of structural control seen for extended framework materials. Now, a ‘mix-and-match’ chiral recognition strategy has been used to form reticular porous supramolecular nanotubes and 3D networks, providing a blueprint for pore design in molecular crystals.

DYNAMIC FLOW SYNTHESIS OF POROUS ORGANIC CAGES

2015

The dynamic covalent synthesis of two imine-based porous organic cages was successfully transferred from batch to continuous flow. The same flow reactor was then used to scramble the constituents of these two cages in differing ratios to form cage mixtures. Preparative HPLC purification of one of these mixtures allowed rapid access to a desymmetrised cage molecule.

FUNCTION-LED DESIGN OF POROUS MATERIALS

2015

"From kitchen sieves and strainers to coffee filters, porous materials have a wide range of uses. On an industrial scale, they are used as sorbents, filters, membranes, and catalysts. Slater and Cooper review how each application will limit the materials that can be used, and also the size and connectivity of the pores required. They go on to compare and contrast a growing range of porous materials that are finding increasing use in academic and industrial applications."
