Abstract

A porous organic polymer decorated with high densities of copper(catecholate) groups was prepared and characterized. Single-component propylene and propane isotherms measured at ambient temperatures and ideal adsorption solution theory (IAST) calculations revealed increasing propylene/propane selectivities with increasing pressures.
