A new family of fluidic precursors for the self-templated synthesis of hierarchical nanoporous carbons Academic Article uri icon


  • Hierarchical nanoporous nitrogen-doped carbons were prepared from task specific ionic liquids having a bis-imidazolium motif linked with various organic groups. While ethyl chains linking the imidazolium ions afforded microporous-mesoporous carbons, long or aromatic groups resulted in microporous samples.
