The work presented in this thesis addresses the synthesis, characterisation and evaluation of novel carbon supports for fuel cell applications. Ordered mesoporous carbons (CMK-1 and CMK-5) exhibiting large surfaces areas up to 1581 m² g⁻¹ were prepared by the templated synthesis of mesoporous silica MCM-48 and SBA-15. In addition, a novel porous carbon structure was produced using a natural, low cost and widely abundant macroporous structure "diatomaceous earth" (celatom FW-80) as template.
