Welcome to our website!  Here you will find information on the research that we do here in the School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh on Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity (PIMs) and porous molecular crystals.  We will also include news on the latest PIMs activities from around the world.


PIMs News



PIM patents page is now updated and includes an interesting patent from DOW on making Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity from Tröger’s base formation: Troger’s base polymers having intrinsic microporosity

Just out.  An important paper from the Colina group (U of Florida) concerning the interpretation  of low pressure gas adsorption data in amorphous microporous polymers, such as… Read more

Work by our research group has produced a new polymer with extraordinarily high gas permeability that may result in more efficient separation membranes for large-scale processes such… Read more
