We report on the synthesis of highly microporous, epoxy-functionalized porous organic polymers (ep-POPs) through one pot, catalyst-free Diels-Alder cycloaddition polymerization. The high oxygen content of ep-POPs offered efficient hydrogen bonding sites for water molecules, thus leading to high water uptake capacities, up to 39.2-42.4%, under a wide temperature range of 5-45oC, covering the...
