Title

Isocyanate-derived Organic Aerogels: Polyureas, Polyimides, Polyamides

Abstract

We describe organic aerogels derived from multifunctional isocyanates through reaction with water (polyureas), acid andydrides (polyimides) and carboxylic acids (polyamides). All processes are invariably single-step, one-pot and take place at room or slightly elevated temperatures. The resulting materials are robust, their density may vary over a very wide range and their nanomorphology can be either particulate or fibrous, but in all cases they all consist of similarly sized primary particles. © 2011 Materials Research Society.
