Carbide-derived carbon (CDC) aerogel monoliths with very high porosity are synthesized starting from polymeric precursors. Crosslinking by platinum-catalyzed hydrosilylation of polycarbosilanes followed by supercrit. drying yields preceramic aerogels. After ceramic conversion and silicon extn. in hot chlorine gas, hierarchically porous carbon materials with sp. surface areas ≤2122 m2.g-1 and outstanding total pore vols. close to 9 cm3.g-1 are obtained. Their pore structure is controllable by the applied synthesis temp. as shown by combined nitrogen (-196 °C) and carbon dioxide (0 °C) measurements coupled with electron microscopic methods. The combination of large micropore vols. and the aerogel-type pore system leads to advanced adsorption properties due to a combination of large storage capacities and effective materials transport in comparison with purely microporous ref. materials as shown by thermal response measurements.
