Avian eggshell membrane as a template for the synthesis of a macroporous network of crystalline LiMn2O4 is demonstrated. Well-formed crystals of average size 600 nm formed a network structure whose average pore size was 2–4 μm. The unique porous structure should make it an attractive cathode material for lithium-ion batteries. In fact, for an 80% cutoff in capacity retention, LiMn2O4 obtained by a 10-h calcination at 800°C sustained 83 cycles.
