Abstract

A star is born: The complex molecular architecture found in plants is used in the design of new nanostructured materials. Carbon-based mesoporous materials with tunable surfaces and bulk properties can be synthesized by the low-temperature carbonization of expanded natural starches that are in turn prepared by a simple gelatinization-retrogradation process.
