ABSTRACT

 

A novel microporous  fluoropolymer  with organic network architecture was prepared by  the simple self crosslinking reaction of the monomer 9,10-Bis(pentafluorophenyl)-9,10-dihydroanthracene-2,3,6,7-tetraol.  The high surface area and microporosity of  the polymer was  estimated by  measuring  N2  adsorption. The microporous fluoropolymer (MP) network  exhibits BET surface area of 1050 m2/g. The micropore size distribution (MPSD)  curve  shows a high concentration of subnanometer pores  which is commonly required for hydrogen storage and easy release. The hydrogen adsorption capacity of the MP is promising and the performance is comparable to other  reported microporous polymers and  commercial resins.  Based on that,  MP can be considered as a potential  hydr  ogen storage material.

 

Key words: Microporosity, Nanoporous frames,  Fluoropolymer, Hydrogen adsorption
