Abstract

The construction of well-controlled porous materials is very challenging. Herein, we report the successful preparation of structurally defined porous membranes based on hexakistriphenylamine metallacycles through electropolymerization. The newly designed porous materials were characterized by the typical cyclic voltammograms, XPS, SEM, and TEM investigations. Further investigations revealed that the metallacycle-based polymer films displayed a good size-selective molecular-sieving behavior.
