Imine-linked microporous polymer organic frameworks (POFs) were synthesized via Schiff base condensation between 1,3,5-triformylbenzene and several readily available diamine monomers. Our facile, one-pot approach results in quantitative yields of POFs with the flexibility to incorporate several functional groups in their pores for tuning the interaction of their surface with different guest molecules. Synthesized POFs exhibit high specific surface areas (up to 1500 m2 g-1) as well as high isosteric heats of H2 adsorption (up to 8.2 kJ mol-1).
