Force-responsive ordered carbonaceous frameworks (OCFs) are synthesized for the first time. Carbonization of Ni porphyrin monomers having eight polymerizable ethynyl groups yields OCFs with atomically dispersed divalent Ni species and developed micropores. The highest specific surface area (673 m2g−1) among the OCFs has been achieved. The OCFs thus synthesized comprise non-stacked graphene sheets, affording a unique mechanical flexibility that enables force-driven reversible phase transition.
