The synthesis of novel spirobisindane-based monomers for the preparation of polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs) with bulky, rigid substituents is described. Polymers derived from monomers containing spiro-linked fluorene substituents display enhanced solubility and microporosity due to additional frustration of packing in the solid state.
