Magnetic, highly porous ordered carbon of the CMK-3 and CMK-5 type and with pure carbon or carbon–nitrogen framework were nanoengineered by a sequence of bulk manipulation steps. The materials can be used as efficient magnetic adsorbents (see picture) or catalysts, but applications going far beyond these can be envisaged.
