Epub 2016 Sep 20.The assembly of melamine and 2,5-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone results in new "sheet-like" supramolecular crystals that by controlled thermal condensation can be converted to photoactive materials at relativity low temperatures. The condensation temperature alters the materials properties from polymer-like to carbon materials alongside their morphology and elemental ratio. This new method opens the possibility for the synthesis of new organic, photoactive carbon-nitrogen based frameworks at low calcination temperatures with great simplicity. Read More
