Charl was invited to deliver a keynote lecture at the 10th International Conference on Advanced Fibers and Polymer Materials (ICAFPM 2021), held at Donghua University, Shanghai, China. As travel is still restricted due to COVID-19, Charl Zoomed over to Shanghai to deliver his lecture on N-containing conjugated microporous polymers early Monday morning! He also joined the State Key Laboratory’s International Advisory Board meeting on Tuesday!
It was also an opportunity to congratulate Donghua University on it’s 70th birthday, and celebrate the 10th edition of the ICAFPM conference series.
Yaozu, who is now back in China at Donghua University, and Ben and Zack (with our collaborator Jens Weber, in Germany) just had a paper accepted for publication in Macromolecules.
This study focused on the use of conjugated microporous polymer networks (prepared using Buchwald-Hartwig cross-coupling reactions with hexaphenylbenzene-based matierlas) for gas uptake. Very impressively, these systems can take more than 300 weight % of iodine up! Porosities and uptake capacities can also be tuned by changing the redox state of these materials! Well done to all!
The latest publication from the Faul group has just been accepted for publication in Macromolecules! The work by Yaozu focuses on microporous polyimides for CO2 uptake.
Yaozu’s paper on the preparation and use of macrocyclic amine-linked oligocarbazole hollow microspheres as heavy metal sorbents has been published online by Macromolecular Rapid Communications!
Congratulations to Yaozu and colleagues!
Yaozu’s Chem Comm manuscript has now been published. This article is freely available as an open-access article! Feel free to download it from here!
