Author(s) from Durham


Highly porous polymeric materials are prepared by thiol–ene and thiol–yne mediated network formation using high internal phase emulsion templates. The efficiency of network formation is between 80 and 90% for all materials while the thiol–yne materials display enhanced strength and toughness due to their higher degree of crosslinking.
