Three-Dimensional Mesoporous Covalent Organic Frameworks through Steric Hindrance Engineering

Abstract : The development of three-dimensional covalent organic frameworks (COFs) with large pores and high surface areas is of great importance for various applications. However, it remains a major challenge due to the unavoidable structural interpenetration and pore collapse after the removal of guest species sitiated in the pores. Herein, we report for the first time a series of 3D mesoporous COFs through a general strategy of enhanced steric hindrance. By using methoxy-modified monomer and increasing methyl groups of linkers, these 3D COFs can be obtained successfully as exclusively non-interpenetrated diamondoid structures, permanent mesopores (up to 26.5 Å), and high surface areas (> 3000 m 2 g-1), which are far superior to those of reported conventional COFs with the same topology. This work thus opens a way to create 3D large-porous COFs for potential applications in adsorption and separation of large inorganic, organic, and biological species.
