Abstract

Researchers at CIC energiGUNE have developed a hierarchical graphitized carbon foam having interconnected microporous structure, at least about 90 % of the total volume, with ordered mesoporous walls, with a pore size varying from 2 to 50 nm, as well as the process for the synthesis of a variety of bimodal porous organic polymer and/or inorganic metal oxide materials.

The process for making this graphitized carbon foam involves a simple and easy preparation with fewer steps at low temperatures, which provides a foam with improved thermal properties, that allows its easy implementation in a large-scale industrial production.
