Sulfonation of partially carbonized polyvinyl chloride produces amorphous carbon consisting of small SO3H-bearing carbon sheets linked by sp3-based aliphatic hydrocarbons (see figure). This carbon material exhibits much higher catalytic performance in the hydrolysis of cellobiose than conventional heterogeneous Brønsted acid catalysts with SO3H groups, due to the fast diffusion of reactants and products enabled by a flexible carbon network.
