Abstract:The second approach was used to prepare meso- and macroporous carbons. A variety of carbon morphologies were observed (as indicated by SEM and TEM). Analysis of the carbon precursors using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) suggests that the decomposition behavior of each precursor is responsible for the observed morphology differences. These carbon materials often have high surface areas and are thermally stable, making them potentially useful in electrochemical, catalytic, adsorbent, and gas-storage applications.
