Abstract

Strict hierarchy: A facile route to porous hybrid polymeric materials based on the vinyl polymerization of nanohybrid building blocks leads to a 3D nanoporous network with a high surface area. Through the use of porogenic solvents, hierarchically structured porous materials with excellent flow-through properties and microfluidic dimensions were prepared with surface areas up to 900 m2 g−1.
