Abstract

An expedient, template-free, high-yield, and solventless route to nitrogen-rich micro- and mesoporous carbons is reported based on direct, atmospheric-pressure carbonization of task-specific ionic liquids bearing one or more nitrile side chains. The resulting textural properties (pore regime, surface area) are highly dependent upon the structural motifs of the ions comprising the corresponding parent ionic liquid, and uniform carbon films are routinely deposited with this novel methodology, highlighting excited new opportunities in the development of advanced functional carbon composites.
