We design two network models of carbon and boron nitride crystalline networks, namely, the honeycomb and triangular foams. The triangular carbon foam is a unique 3D network model of carbon which contains only sp2-carbon bonds. Also, it has large internal surface area per unit volume and bulk modulus.
