Abstract

(Figure Presented) In the groove: Radical polymerization of divinylbenzenes (DVBs) in the one-dimensional nanochannels of porous coordination polymers allows linearly extended topotactic polymerization without cross-linking (see picture). The main factors that influence this polymerization are the channel size and host framework flexibility.
