Rigid wiry nets: Conjugated microporous polymer networks are formed by Sonogashira–Hagihara coupling. Although these materials are amorphous, the micropore size and surface area can be controlled by varying the length of the phenyleneethynylene struts (see picture; the network is shown in blue, and one 1,3,5-substituted benzene node and three connected struts are highlighted with C gray and H white).
