Microstructure replication of complex biostructures via poly(ionic liquid)-assisted carbonization

Abstract

Microstructure transcription of opalescent beetles into functional carbon “bugs” via poly(ionic liquid)-assisted carbonization was reported. The presence of a thin coating layer of PIL bearing a dicyanamide anion was found to provide the most precise microstructure preservation even under aerobic combustion conditions.
