Ordered mesoporous carbons (OMCs) are of great interest in various areas for the so-called XXI century’s sustainable society. Energy production/storage and environmental remediation are two of the main applications of these materials. The objective of the present work was to prepare OMCs by a sustainable and eco-friendly methodology and to verify the influence of their surface chemistry and pore size distribution upon the uptake of Rhodamine B (RhB ) and its photocatalytic degradation.
