From polymer templates to mesoporous materials: With the reverse amphiphilic triblock copolymer PPO-PEO-PPO and a resol resin precursor an organic–organic self-assembly process leads to the formation of an ordered polymer and a carbon mesostructure with a face-centered-cubic Fdequation imagem symmetry and bimodal pores (see scheme). PPO=polypropylenoxide, PEO=polyethylenoxide.
