A highly detailed review on ageing in polymers of intrinsic microporosity written in collaboration with Peter Budd (U. Manchester) and the late Darrell Patterson (U. Bath), which is to appear in Chemical Reviews is now on-line.


Our paper on Spirobifluorene based polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIM-SBFs) is now out in the Journals of Materials Chemistry A.   It includes some very nice ageing data that shows a good enhancement of selectivity over time – one example even reaching the 2015 upper bound for O2/N2. JMCA_SBF_GA.jpg

Reviews: I highly recommend reading this very nice and detailed overview of the use of new microporous materials, including polymers of intrinsic microporosity for important separations:


Also, here is a nice review on PIMs for gas separation membranes:
