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.
