Novel functionalized three-dimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) polymeric materials with well-interconnected and chemically stable structures are created through templating with latex colloidal crystals. These materials display improved CO2 air capture performance compared to a commercially available resin. A versatile strategy is developed to prepare functional porous polymers by colloidal crystal templating, which opens up the use of 3DOM materials for CO2 capture.
