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.

Added value

  • High specific surface area.
  • Low density and high porosity.
  • Good mechanical stability.
  • High electrical conductivity.
  • High thermal conductivity.

Application of the technology

  • Thermal energy storage applications.
  • Electrical energy storage applications.
  • Heat exchanger-heat sinks.
  • Microelectronics.
