Abb. 1:  (a) Illustration of the dye adsorption mechanism on bulk COF and ultrathin COF. Bulk COF only allows dyes with a molecular size much smaller than the pore size to enter the COF channels, while ultrathin COF provides maximum adsorption site exposure, resulting in high uptake for various dyes. (b) Comparison of equilibrium times and maximum adsorption capacities (qm) of bulk COF and ultrathin COF for Rhodamine B. (© Changxia Li, Freddy Kleitz et al.)
