Due to the environmental persistence and various health problems associated with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), they have come under increased public scrutiny. However, the efficient extraction of PFASs from complex media remains challenging. Herein, an olefin-linked covalent organic framework (COF-CN) has been prepared via a Knoevenagel condensation reaction, followed by reduction using LiAlH to form an amine-functionalized COF (COF-NH).
