Microporous carbon foams were synthesized as structured catalyst supports by the carbide-derived carbon (CDC) method. The self-supporting foams showed a narrow pore size distribution which seems to induce shape-selective effects during reactions. The applicability of these materials as supports for active metals was tested in a hydrogenation reaction of different olefins with a CDC powder wet impregnated with platinum
