In the past decade there has been tremendous research interest in porous polymers due to their great application potential in gas storage/separation and catalysis. Porous polymers can generally be classified into two large groups: metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) or coordination polymers, and purely organic-based porous polymers, such as COFs, CMPs, PIMs, PPNs, etc. The purpose of this issue is to assess the current state of the field: materials design principles, structure-property relationships, and particularly applications of porous polymers, which include gas adsorption/separation, catalysis, chemical sensing, and light harvesting (optoelectronic/photovoltaic device).

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
