New paper in Adv. Mater.: “Selective CO₂ Electroreduction from Tuneable Naphthalene-Based Porous Polyimide Networks”

Excited to announce Basiram and Dr. Baker‘s latest openly accessible article in Adv. Mater. entitled “Selective CO2 electroreduction from tuneable naphthalene-based porous polyimide networks” detailing exciting new metal-free materials for CO2 capture & reduction.

New article in Nature Communications

Charl has contributed to a paper with collaborators from the College of Chemistry, Jilin University (Changchun) and the Department of Macromolecular Science, Fudan University (Shanghai) exploring the liquid-crystalline behaviour of dumbbell-shaped colloidal particles. If you are interested in the formation of chiral blue phases from such achiral structures, then please read the paper for more details!

New publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry family

Delighted to share a new publication in Journal of Materials Chemistry C entitled Thionated PDI supramolecular polymers: controlling aggregation mechanisms, morphology and function discussing the effects on self-assembly of heteroatom substitution in supramolecular polymer systems.

These findings are based on work accomplished during Faul group members Henry E. Symons‘ and Maximillian J. L. Hagemann‘s PhD studies. Congratulations to all authors involved.

New accepted manuscript in Chemistry—A European Journal

A new review entitled Design and Control of Perylene Supramolecular Polymers through Imide Substitutions has been accepted in Chemistry—A European Journal. The publication is concerned with perylene-based supramolecular polymers (SMPs) and their exploitable properties achievable via chemical modification of the imide substituents.

Congratulations to all involved with this achievement.

New accepted manuscript in Polymer Chemistry

A new review covering porous polyimides (pPIs) has been accepted in the RSC’s Polymer Chemistry journal entitled Crosslinked Porous Polyimides: Structure, Properties and Applications. The publication covers this class of porous organic polymer (POP) and highlights their high thermal and chemical stability, high surface area, energy storage capabilities and promising future.

Congratulations to Mr Narzary, Dr Baker, Ms Yadav and Profs D’Elia & Faul on this achievement.

Review paper with Kamran and Zhixiang!

A review just appeared in Nano Energy with our collaborators from the National Centre for Nanoscience and Technology, Bejing. The review, entitled “Conjugated microporous polymers for energy storage: Recent progress and challenges” covers the very broad and active field of energy storage, specficially highlighting challenges and opportunities.

Congrats to Kamran and all others involved in another paper in this growing collaboration!
