18_05b/2008Inside Front Cover: Two-Dimensional Hexagonally-Ordered Mesoporous Carbon Nitrides with Tunable Pore Diameter, Surface Area and Nitrogen Content (Adv. Funct. Mater. 5/2008)

Ajayan Vinu and co-workers report on p. 816 the successful preparation of two-dimensional mesoporous carbon nitride (MCN) with tunable pore diameters, from 4.2 to 6.4 nm, by using SBA-15 materials with different pore diameters as template through a simple polymerization reaction between ethylenediamine and carbon tetrachloride. The materials are highly active and show a high conversion and 100% product selectivity to caprophenone in the Friedel-Crafts acylation of benzene using hexanoyl chloride.
