Methane storage is important for the development of alternative energy carriers. The synthesis and methane storage properties of microporous hypercrosslinked organic polymers are reported. The figure shows a simulation of methane sorption in microporous hypercrosslinked poly(p-dichloroxylene); up to 5.2 mmol g(-1]) CH4 at 20 bar/298 K; isosteric heat of sorption similar to 21 kJ mol(-1).
