We report the synthesis of one new boronate ester-based covalent organic framework (COF) and two new covalent organic polymers (COPs) made with fluoranthene-containing monomers and hexahydroxytriphenylene. The structure of the monomer heavily influences whether this material forms a highly ordered mesoporous material (COF) or an amorphous, microporous material (COP). The synthesis of the fluoranthene monomers was carried out using a divergent strategy that allows for systematic structural… CONTINUE READING
