This mini-review focuses the attention on the use of nanoporous organic polymers as support of inorganic nanoparticles for the design of metal catalysts active in organic synthesis. The porosity of the support enhances the performance of the metal catalyst, concentrating the reactants at the catalytic sites as a novel example of confined catalysis. Noteworthy metal nanoparticles embedded in nanoporous polymer support have been processed under the form of powder, membrane and monolith in which they found application in batch catalysis and flow chemistry, providing targeted examples of sustainable and green reaction pathways.
