Abstract: It has been previously demonstrated that restricted rotation about the C(aryl)-N(imide) bond can yield room temperature stable atropisomers. The incorporation of monomers containing similar C(aryl)-N(imide) bonds having restricted rotation into a cross-linked polymer was investigated to generate shape-programmable macroporous polymers. The nature of these macroporous polymeric systems facilitates their potential use as reprogrammable recognition elements in sensor and separation applications. The programmability of these systems is a result of repetitive heating and cooling cycles in the presence and absence of a guest molecule. Ring opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) was chosen as mild and well-studied method for the introduction of highly functionalized monomers such as the requisite N-arylimide monomer units into a macroporous polymer network. The synthesis and physical properties of programmable cross-linked polymers via ROMP will be presented.
