Carbonization and chemical activation of an ionic liquid are demonstrated to produce an outstanding structural combination of an unexpectedly high surface area and a graphitic structure. This activated carbon has a very high CO2 uptake and high specific capacitance, thus making it ideally suited to advanced energy storage systems.
