We demonstrate a bio-inspired one-pot synthesis of carbon nanospheres with micro-porosity achieved from a promising carbon-rich source (Areca nut) using direct pyrolysis in nitrogen atmosphere at 550 °C in a tube-furnace without adding any catalysts. The resultant carbon spheres are highly monodispersed, uniformly shaped and possess good absorption behaviour (10.5 mg · g−1) for methylene blue (MB).
