We demonstrate a tandem truncation–functionalization strategy using the 3D covalent organic framework, COF-102. Allyl groups incorporated within the pore walls were subjected to thiol–ene coupling conditions, achieving high conversions and maintaining the crystallinity and permanent porosity of the parent framework.
