Macro/meso/microporous carbon monoliths doped with sulfur have been prepared from sulfonated polydivinylbenzene networks followed by the activation with CO 2 resulted in the activated carbon monoliths with high surface area of 2400 m 2 g -1. The monolithic electrode of the activated carbon shows remarkably high specific capacitance (175 F g -1 at 5 mV s -1 and 206 F g -1 at 0.5 A g -1).
