- A series of azo-bridged, aromatic, nitrogen-rich, microporous covalent porphyrinic polymers (Azo-CPPs) were synthesized through a metal catalyst-free direct coupling of a kind of tetranitro building block, 4NO₂TPP, and several diamine or tetraamine compounds, under basic conditions. The Azo-CPPs were all amorphous and exhibited surface areas between 197 to 591 m² g⁻¹. The effect of building blocks on the pore properties was discussed. Meanwhile, the capacity of adsorption of CO₂ for all the Azo-CPPs was studied and the CO₂ uptake capacity was between 7.36% and 9.22% at 273 K and 1.10 bar. The CO₂/N₂ selectivities were measured between 27.4–53.9 at 273 K and 31.2–107.8 at 303 K, respectively, showing an increase in selectivity with increasing temperature.
