Nanoporous polymer technologies present exciting new opportunities for fine tuning polymers for applications in ultrafiltration, selective membranes, or even selective catalysis. Polyethylene is a great candidate for such applications with its chemical robustness and favorable thermal properties. Block copolymers serve as an effective avenue for synthesizing such polymers given their affinity for micro phase separation.
