Cyanogels are three dimensional star polymer systems that highlights the bridging cyanide as the structural polymer forming unit and distinguishes them from classical oxometalate inorganic gel systems. Thermogravimetric analysis indicates that cyanogels are approximately 95% water by mass. Gels can be dehydrated to from xeriogels. Aerogels can be formed by exchange of the aqueous phase by super critical carbon dioxide followed by gasification of the CO2.
