Hexaphenylbiadamantane-based microporous organic polymers (MOPs) were successfully synthesized by Suzuki coupling under mild conditions. The obtained MOPs show high surface area (891 m2 g−1), ultra-high thermal (less than 40% mass loss at temperatures up to 1000 °C) and chemical (no apparent decomposition in organic solvents for more than 7 days) stability, gas (H2, CO2, CH4) capture capabilities and vapor (benzene, hexane) adsorption. These combined abilities render the synthesized MOPs an attractive candidate as thermo-chemically stable adsorbents for practical use in gas storage and pollutant vapor adsorption.
