A facile method to fabricate high-surface area functional carbons via convenient “salt templating” is presented. Exemplarily, nitrogen- as well as nitrogen-/boron-co-doped carbons were synthesized using ionic liquids as precursors and eutectics as porogen. The porogen is easily removable with water and the porosities can be adjusted from micro- to mesoporous depending on the salt nature and amount.
