This paper illustrates the gas adsorption properties of newly synthesized nanoporous cross-linked polymer networks (CPNs). All synthesized CPNs possess N-rich functional groups and are used for the utilization of carbon dioxide and methane. Good gas adsorption and selectivities are obtained for all of the samples. Among the materials, HEREON2 outperforms better selectivity for methane separation from nitrogen rather than zeolites, activated carbons, molecular sieves, covalent organic frameworks, and metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). The accessibility of the N-rich functionalities makes these materials potential candidates for the separation of hydrocarbons via increased polarizabilities. High-pressure adsorption experiments showed that the synthesized two-dimensional nanoporous materials also have a high affinity toward carbon dioxide. HEREON2 powders showed an increased experimental CO2/N2 selectivity of ∼25,000 at 50 bar due to the presence of nitrogen groups in the structure. Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), solid-state NMR, X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were applied for the characterization of the synthesized nanoporous CPNs. The results show a potential new pathway for future CPN membrane development.
