Abstract

original image

Nitrider: A polymeric semiconductor is synthesized by a one-step process, using a variety of block copolymers, nonionic surfactants, and even ionic liquids as a soft templates. The pore size and specific surface area are tunable via the template content and processing conditions. Triton X-100 and some selected ionic liquids give CN materials with accessible pore systems and high relative nitrogen contents.
