Abstract

The synthesis of novel monomers based upon the rigid 1,1'-spiro-bis(1,2,4,5-tetrahydro-6,7-dihydroxynaphthalene) framework is reported. These monomers can be used for the synthesis of polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs) due to their reactive catechol units and nonlinear shape, which introduces the necessary sites of contortion into the resulting PIM.
