dc.description.abstractTwo-dimensional carbon materials, incorporating a large mesoporosity, are attracting considerable research interest in various fields such as catalysis, electrochemistry, and energy-related technologies owing to their integrated functionalities. However, their potential applications, which require favorable mass transport within mesopore channels, are constrained by the undesirable and finite mesostructural configurations due to the immense synthetic difficulties. Herein, we demonstrate an oriented monomicelle assembly strategy, for the facile fabrication of highly ordered mesoporous carbon thin films with vertically aligned and permeable mesopore channels. Such a facile and reproducible approach relies on the swelling and fusion effect of hydrophobic benzene homologues for directional monomicelle assembly. The orientation assembly process shows precise controllability and great universality, affording mesoporous carbon films with a cracking-free structure over a centimeter in size, highly tunable thicknesses (13 to 85 nm, an interval of ∼12 nm), mesopore size (8.4 to 13.5 nm), and switchable growth substrates. Owing to their large permeable mesopore channels, electrochemical sensors based on vertical mesoporous carbon films exhibit an ultralow limit of detection (50 nmol L-1) and great sensitivity in dopamine detection.
