Cryostructuration as a tool for preparing highly porous polymer materials

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Cryostructuration is a technique which can be used to produce highly porous polymer materials from either monomeric or polymeric starting material. The technique utilizes freezing of dilute solutions or suspensions for the formation of porous materials. The process has been used in both aqueous and organic media for the preparation of porous materials. This mini-review highlights some recent trends for cryostructuration where it is based on a freeze/thawing approach.
