Carbide-derived carbon monoliths with hierarchical pore architectures

Sierpinski carbon: Macroporous carbide-derived carbon monoliths (DUT-38) were synthesized starting from SiC-PolyHIPEs, resulting in a hierarchical micro-, meso-, and macroporous structure. The high specific surface area and high macropore volume renders PolyHIPE-CDC an excellent adsorbent combining high storage capacity with excellent adsorption rates in gas storage and air filtration.
