A porous, nitrogen-doped carbonaceous free-standing membrane (TFMT-550) is prepared by a facile template-free method using letrozole as an intermediate to a triazole-functionalized-triazine framework, followed by carbonization. Such adsorption/diffusion membranes exhibit good separation performance of CO2 over N2 and surpassing the most recent Robeson upper bound. An exceptional ideal CO2 /N2 permselectivity of 47.5 was achieved with a good CO2 permeability of 2.40 × 10(-13) mol m m(-2) s(-1) Pa(-1) . The latter results arise from the presence of micropores, narrow distribution of small mesopores and from the strong dipole-quadrupole interactions between the large quadrupole moment of CO2 molecules and the polar sites associated with N groups (e.g., triazine units) within the framework.
