Title: Well-defined organicnanoporous materials
Session: Monday 5 October, 14:30


The development of organic nanoporous materials with a very well-defined pore structure and good mechanical properties is a challenge. In particular for the application as filtration membranes, drug delivery systems, breathable clothing or absorber materials. With this work, the organic material is a complex between two molecules which show non-covalent interactions. This complex is a columnar liquid crystal. Cross-linking one component fixates the structure in a polymer network. Removal of the other component, the template molecule, gives a hexagonal patterned nanoporous material, with pores of ~ 1.6 nm. The pores can also be uniformly aligned on a macroscopic scale to obtain thin films of a well-defined nanostructured material.
