Well-ordered meso-macroporous carbon nitride film fabricated via a simple and flexible template replication method by using the P123 block copolymer and polystyrene spheres as dual templates shows selective sensing performance for acetic acid but after treating the surface of the film with UV light and oxygen, the selectivity of sensing can be tuned for basic molecules.
