Abstract

Series of silicon carbonitride ceramics are utilized to obtain hierarchically porous carbide-derived carbons (CDCs) for cytokine removal. The removal rate of TNF-α and IL-6, as two examples of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, is proportional to the surface area of pores larger than the size of the protein molecule
