Fantastic news! A paper from the Faul Research Group by Jie Chen (now back in China), Esther Townsend (BCFN), Veronica del Angel Hernandez, Pan, and colleagues from the Xi’an Jiaotong University in China appeared in Angewandte Chemie today!
The discovery of the Bristol-Xi’an Jiaotong (BXJ) approach, where we use simple inorganic salts to carefully tune N-containing conjugated microporous materials (CMPs), enables elegant synthetic control over the surface area, pore size distributions and function of N-containing CMPs. This approach enables the preparation of amorphous porous materials that start to challenge COFs and MOFs in properties and function!
Well done to all involved!!
