Ultrapermeable polymer by design

Ultrapermeable micro-porous polymer designed by close coupling of experimental and computational predictions

Colina, McKeown, and co-workers reported in a recent article in Nature Materials that the inefficient packing of two-dimensional (2D) chains of PIM-TMN-Trip generates an ultrapermeable polymer. This microporous polymer increases the efficiency of membranes for gas separations to new boundaries. More about this work can be found at doi:10.1038/nmat4939.
