Bottom-up synthesis of fully sp2 hybridized three-dimensional microporous graphitic frameworks as metal-free catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on the bottom-up synthesis of a fully sp2-hybridized nitrogenated three-dimensional microporous graphitic framework (3D-MGF) starting from a highly preorganized, saddle-shaped tetraphenylene derivative under ionothermal reaction conditions. The 3D-MGF showed high stability and a surface area of 928 m2 g−1 along with a narrow pore size distribution. Our approach enabled template-free inclusion of the third dimension into the graphitic frameworks while retaining π-conjugation and conductivity, which was verified by their activity as metal-free electrocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction.
