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.
A bumper crop of 100 PIM papers published in 2017 is listed on the PIMs Papers and Papers 2017 pages
A fascinating and efficient new method for making Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity with highly rigid structures is described in Macromolecules. Preliminary data polymers appear to be useful… Read more
TB or not TB: A nice paper from the Pinnau Group at KAUST suggests that the tertiary amines in Troger’s Base (TB) have very little effect over… Read more
