Frontiers of Organic Porous Materials: Structures, Properties and Applications (#223)

Organic porous materials have emerged as a novel class of porous materials that are built from organic building blocks connected through covalent and/or non-covalent interactions. Organic porous materials cover a broad spectrum of chemical research and materials science, including organic cage compounds, supramolecular porous polymers, conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), polymers with intrinsic microporosity (PIMs), porous aromatic frameworks (PAFs), etc. In recent years, there has been tremendous progress in this field, which represents one of the most rapidly growing research areas worldwide, and shows great potential in achieving diversity of structures and functions.

This symposium covers all the aspects of organic porous materials, including the design, synthesis, simulations, properties and functions, and applications (gas adsorption and separation, catalysis, chemical sensing, and optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices, etc). The goals of this symposium are to bring cutting-edge topics, progress, and new directions of the field, provide an efficient platform to promote the formation of network between chemists, physicists, and materials scientists, strengthen idea and personnel exchanges between different fields, push the further advancement of related research fields, and catalyze new collaborations for developing the next generation of organic porous materials.
