A study was conducted to investigate multiscale porous interconnected nanocolander network with tunable transport properties. The study presented a design strategy in the form of nanocolander networks where a multiscale design was employed to create a macroporous template via colloidal self-assembly and to build into the template mesoscale functional elements based on block copolymer (BCP) microphase separation. The primary template carrying an inverse-opal (IO) structure was constructed from the self-assembled opal structure of colloidal particles. The microphase-separated block copolymer created well-defined nanosieves with uniform mesopores inside the IO-structured template, enabling the successful realization of intricate multiscale porous architecture.
