A facile, single-step development strategy of a sub-nanoscopic Lewis acidic Co and basic imidazole grafted porous organic polymer is reported. The synergistic activation of an epoxide and CO2 by the Lewis pairs present in the material manifested their rapid conversion to cyclic carbonates under ambient pressure with high yield, selectivity, and TOF.
