Exploring Trianglamine Derivatives and Trianglamine Coordination Complexes as Porous Organic Materials

  • Magdalene Eziashi

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Trianglamines are triangular chiral macrocycles that were first synthesized by Gawronski’s group in Poland in the year 2000.1 Despite their unique properties; triangular pore shape, chirality, symmetric structure and tunable pore size, they are still a poorly researched class of macrocycles today. Trianglamines have yet a role to play as porous organic molecules for separation processes, as macrocyclic precursors to build increasingly complex supramolecular assemblies and as building blocks for caged porous organic structures. The aim of the Thesis work is to explore trianglamine, its derivatives, and assemblies as viable porous organic molecules for potential gas capture and separation.
