Better than sliced bread: Layered two-dimensional graphene-based conjugated microporous polymers, which exhibit high surface areas and fluorescence quenching, can be prepared by a graphene-mediated Sonogashira-Hagihara coupling. Upon thermal pyrolysis, these porous polymers are readily converted into porous carbon materials with intriguing physical and electrochemical properties (see scheme; pink spheres=thiophene, thiazole, or pyridine units).
