Advanced Porous Materials: Design, Synthesis, and Applications in Sustainability

The study of advanced porous materials (APMs), encompassing metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), porous organic polymers (POPs) and others, has progressed rapidly in the past few decades.

On the applications front, APMs have the potential to redefine numerous domains related to energy and the environment. However, the synthesis of remarkably complex functional structures requires potentially elaborate synthetic procedures deserving careful sustainability and life-cycle analyses.

In this Virtual Special Issue “Advanced Porous Materials: Design, Synthesis, and Applications in Sustainability” from ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, 34 articles, 2 letters, and 8 perspectives have been curated to offer a cradle-to-grave look at the applications and synthetic methods of APMs.

Read the editorial by Dan Zhao (National University of Singapore), Praveen K. Thallapally (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory), Camille Petit (Imperial College London), and Jorge Gascon (KAUST Catalysis Center).
