Exceptional organic solvent uptake by disulfide-linked polymeric networks
byH. A. Patel, M. S. Yavuz, C. T. Yavuz
Disulfide-linked covalent organic polymers (COPs) were prepared through catalyst-free oxidative coupling polymerization. Owing to the excellent swelling behavior, low cost, and efficient synthesis, these materials can be promising materials for removal of organics in concentrated streams. COPs show 1,4-dioxane uptake up to 1.8 g g−1.
