This Thesis details the synthesis, characterisation, and appl ications of micro/mesoporous carbon materials with tunable porosity prepared via template carbonisation. The main focus is the development of carbonaceous porous materials via for energy related gas storage applications. The Thesis investigates three synthesis strategies, namely; (i) nanocasting via liquid impregnation using zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) as template, (ii) combination of liquid impregnation and chemical vapour deposition (CVD) using ZIF -8 as template and (iii) use of zeolite 13X and Y as templates for porous N-doped (carbon nitride type) materials. All the templated carbon materials were additionally activated to enhance their porosity and evaluated for gas (hydrogen and C02) storage.
