Mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) comprising Matrimid and a microporous azine-linked covalent organic frameworks (ACOF-1) were prepared and tested in the separation of CO2from an equimolar CO2/CH4mixture. The COF-based MMMs show a more than doubling of the CO2permeability upon 16 wt % ACOF-1 loading together with a slight increase in selectivity compared to the bare polymer. These results show the potential of COFs in the preparation of MMMs.
