Porous carbon materials attract great interest in a wide range of applications such as batteries, fuel cells, and membranes, due to their large surface area, structural and compositional tunability, and chemical stability. While micropores are typically obtained when preparing carbon materials by pyrolysis, the fabrication of mesoporous, and especially macroporous carbons is more challenging, yet important for enhancing mass transport. Herein, template-free regular macroporous carbons are prepared from a mixture of unfolded (linear) and folded (single-chain nanoparticles, SCNP) polyvinylpyrrolidone chains. Read More
