Title: Highly effective ammonia removal in a series of Brønsted acidic porous polymers: investigation of chemical and structural variations

Abstract

Efficient removal of ammonia from air is demonstrated in a series of Brønsted acidic porous polymers under dry and humid conditions. The impact of acidic group strength and their spatial distribution on the ammonia uptake is investigated systematically.
