Conjugated Porous Organic Polymers for Gas Sorption and Chemical Catalysis
Dr. Bao-Hang Han is a professor of supramolecular nanoporous materials at the NCNST, obtained his PhD degree from Nankai University, Tianjin, China. Before he joined the NCNST, he worked as a post-doctorial fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interface, Golm, Germany, the Department of Chemistry, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada, and the Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.
Conjugated organic polymers, possessing intrinsic properties of large surface areas, high thermal and chemical stabilities, and low skeleton density, exhibit potential applications in gas storage and separation, and catalysis. Based on special three-dimensional rigid monomers, various heteroatom-containing organic microporous polymers were prepared through a wide variety of C–C coupling reactions and further characterized at the molecular level by 13C CP/MAS NMR spectrum, as well as other techniques. All the obtained polymers are chemically and thermally stable.
