Title
Textural property tuning of ordered mesoporous carbon obtained by glycerol conversion using SBA-15 silica as template
Author
Abstract
Wet and dry template methods were used to simultaneously control the pore size, morphology, and graphitization in structurally well-ordered mesoporous carbons. A novel structure has been prepared using glycerol as the carbon source. Depending on the loading amount of the glycerol, the structural characteristics of the mesoporous carbon materials can be controlled. The structurally well-ordered carbon materials have been characterized by various techniques such as nitrogen sorption, XRD, Raman spectroscopy, TGA measurements and SEM. They have graphitic character, high BET surface area (ca 1440 m2/g) and a tunable pore size. They are likely to be useful in a variety of applications including gas storage, electrode materials or catalyst supports.
