Understanding the formation mechanism of ultra porous framework materials may lead to insights into strategies for the design and synthesis of novel ultra porous materials or for the increased surface area of known materials. Several potential formation mechanisms have been proposed based on experimental evidence. Here, we assess, via simulation of the network generation process, these mechanisms and have identified key processes by which network interpenetration is minimised and hence surface area is maximised.
