We report here the synthesis of conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs) based on pyrene building units. The networks are both microporous and highly luminescent. The emission colour and resulting band gap can be fine tuned by introducing different comonomers and by varying the monomer distribution (statistical versus alternating). These materials might find applications in organic electronics, photocatalysis, optoelectronics, or in sensing technologies.
