Sugars can be directly … … transformed into porous nitrogen-doped carbon materials in the presence of poly(ionic liquid)s. In their Communication on page 6028 ff., J. Yuan, Y. Wang, and co-workers describe the application of this method to synthesize carbon particles 20–50 nm in size and also to synthesize, in one step, nitrogen-doped carbon materials embedded with core–shell Au–Pd nanoparticles.
