Ordered mesoporous CMK-5 carbon exhibits two distinct pore systems that
can be modified individually. This work demonstrates how one of the pore
systems can be selectively filled with elemental sulfur, while the
other pore system remains empty. The resulting sulfur–carbon composite
material with high residual porosity can be used as the cathode material
in lithium–sulfur battery cells. We present a systematic investigation
of the loading of CMK-5 carbon with variable relative amounts of sulfur
and compare the results to the preparation of SnO2 (as well as TiO2, Mn2O3/Mn3O4, NiO) nanoparticle-loaded CMK-5 carbon.
