We demonstrate a facile method for preparing a novel nanoporous material with an isotropic, three-dimensionally continuous pore structure from a polymeric bicontinuous microemulsion precursor, which consists of two immiscible homopolymers and the corresponding diblock copolymer. The protocol for the generation of nanopores is selective cross-linking of one domain with the subsequent removal of the other domain by solvent dissolution.
