Title: Porous Structure Design of Polymeric Membranes for Gas Separation

High-performance polymeric membranes for gas separation are of interest for molecular-level separations in industrial-scale chemical, energy and environmental processes. To overcome the inherent trade-off relationship between permeability and selectivity, the creation of permanent microporosity in polymeric matrices is highly desirable because the porous structures can provide a high fractional free volume to facilitate gas transport through the dense layer. In this feature article, recent developments in the formation of porous polymeric membranes and potential strategies for pore structure design are reviewed.
