Summary Syndiotactic polystyrene films and aerogels with nanoporous crystalline phase and sulfonated amorphous phase have been prepared and characterized. The nanoporous nature of the crystalline phase confers to these materials a high solubility of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from aqueous solutions even at low VOC concentrations while the sulfonation of the amorphous phase enhance the VOC sorption kinetics. These combined properties make these materials particularly interesting for a potential use as a sorption medium to remove traces of pollutants from water. Different aspects relative to the preparation, the structure and the transport properties of these innovative polymeric materials are described.
