AbstractNovel porous organic polymers (POPs) have been synthesized using functionalized Cr and Co-salen complexes as molecular building blocks. The integration of metalosalen catalysts into the porous polymers backbone permits the successful utilization of the materials as solid-state catalysts for CO2-epoxide cycloadditions reactions with excellent catalytic performance under mild conditions of temperature and pressure. The catalyst proved to be fully recyclable and robust thus showing the potential of POPs as smart functional materials for the heterogenization of key catalytic elements.
