Abstract: The cover picture shows the processing of nanofibers into ultralight 3D sponges or aerogels by solid templating. These sponges exhibit a hierarchical porous structure, where the major pores are replica of the growing crystals while minor pores are formed from entangled nanofibers. By rigorously controlling crystal growth the ultimate pore structure is created. Changing the size of the microstructure by one order of magnitude allowed us to change the macroscopic properties of the nanofiber based sponges by more than two orders of magnitude as exemplified for air permeability and particle adsorption. Based on the solid templating technology, we envision custom designed materials as tissue scaffolds, wound dressings, catalyst supports, suited for liquid adsorption or used in chromatographic applications.
