The enhanced transport of CO2 through the membranes has been artistically depicted. The significant increase in gas permeability of our membranes is attributed to the additional gas transport pathways introduced by the porous ACOF-1 network. In addition, the higher selectivity with respect to the bare polymer can be related to the selective adsorption of CO2 over CH4 on ACOF-1, leading to a facilitated transport of CO2 molecules through the membrane. Artistically, both aspects are illustrated with the high speed trains loaded with CO2 passing through COF tunnels through a polymer mountain.
