Porous carbon materials were synthesized by simple pyrolysis of various zinc-containing MOFs. These materials exhibited superior CO2 capacities compared to those of the pristine MOFs. Moreover, the porous carbon materials, in contrast to their parent MOFs, showed an excellent CO2 separation ability under humid conditions.
