Covalent organic framework (COF) membranes used for selective removal of CO2 were believed as an efficient and low-cost solution to energy and environmental sustainability. In this study, the amide modified COF nanosheet cluster with a 2D structure was facilely prepared through solid reaction, exhibiting good adsorption-based CO2 selectivity (223 at 273 K and 90 at 298 K) toward N2. Remarkably, the mixed matrix membrane (MMM) that consists of a lesser amount of COF filler (1 wt %) shows promising CO2/N2 gas selectivity (∼64). In addition, the competitive adsorption prompts the selectivity to ∼72 under an equimolar CO2/N2 mixture, which surpasses the values of all reported COF membranes. It is worth to note that the binary gas separation is stable during 120 h.
