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.
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
Two interesting reports of novel Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity containing adamantyl units: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1099-0518 and Phthalazinone units: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0376738817300479
An excellent paper on the mechanism of gas adsorption into PIM-1 from Sarti, Paul and Minelli showing that the application of BET analysis is both unnecessary and… Read more
