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 (PMCs). We will also include news on the latest PIMs activities from around the world.
A very impressive study in the journal Nature on lithium cation transport in PIMs of relevance to batteries from the Helms Group. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-021-03377-7
Despite the world’s problems in 2020, there were a record number of papers published on PIMs (~150) demonstrating the growing interest in this class of material.
