Polymer-derived, monolithic three-dimensional nanographene (3D-NG) bulk material with tunable properties is produced by a simple and inexpensive approach. The material is mass-producible, and combines chemical inertness and mechanical strength with a hierarchical porous architecture and a graphene-like surface area. This provides an opportunity to control its electron transport and mechanical properties dynamically by means of electrochemical-induced interfacial electric fields.
