Hot Article: Multifunctional porous aramids (aerogels) by efficient reaction of carboxylic acids and isocyanates

In this Hot Article, porous low-density polyamide aerogels are synthesized in one-pot by reacting carboxylic acids with isocyanates. The aerogels combine high specific energy absorption with low speed of sound and Styrofoam-like thermal conductivity.
