Mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride materials: synthesis and modifications

Mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride materials: synthesis and modifications Graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), as a kind of polymeric semiconductor that has unique electronic structure and excellent chemical stability, has attracted increasing attention of researchers. Moreover, the raw materials for the preparation of g-C3N4 are various and easily accessible. All of these have provided favorable advantages for the fast development of g-C3N4. Compared to bulk g-C3N4, mesoporous g-C3N4 has more prominent natures, such as high specific surface area, large pore volume, and the increased amount of surface active sites. Therefore, great efforts have been devoted to develop mesoporous g-C3N4 (MCN). Up to now, many methods have been explored for the synthesis of MCN, such as hard-template method, soft-template method, template-free method, sol–gel method, and so on. Among these methods, the hard template method is used most widely. In this paper, the recent research on the synthesis of MCN was reviewed. In addition, the modifications to the obtained MCN, which lead to performance enhancement of the MCN for better applications, were also summarized.
