Abstract

Templation in liquid ammonia: The first porous materials formed by templating in liquid ammonia utilize the liquid-crystalline phase formed by cellulose/NH4SCN in NH3. By changing the proportions of reactants, the porosity, surface area, and morphology of the materials can be modified. The as-synthesized mesoporous materials present a lamellar morphology (see picture).
