Mesoporous Nitrides through Nano-Hard Templating Techniques
Mesoporous carbon nitride materials have been synthesized using SBA-15 by pore filling technique whereas mesoporous boron nitride and boron carbon nitride have been prepared by elemental substitution technique using mesoporous carbon as template. The obtained materials have been unambiguously characterized by sophisticated techniques such as XRD, HRTEM, EELS, XPS, FT-IR and N2 adsorption. The textural parameters of the materials are quite higher as compared to the respective nonporous nitrides. These materials could offer great potential for the applications, such as catalytic supports, gas storage, biomolecule adsorption and drug delivery.
