Schwarzites are 3D crystalline carbon allotropic structures with different porosity levels. They are formed by carbon atoms in sp2 hybridised states generating stable structures with intrinsic negative curvatures. In this project we intend to investigate their structural, mechanical and transport properties using a multi-scale approach. (AU)
