Hydrothermal carbonization of a waste biomass material is a green and promising technique for improving its solid fuel properties, which does not require pretreatment procedure such as drying of the biomass. In this study, hydrothermal carbonization... Read More

Biomass derived mesoporous carbon monoliths via an evaporation-induced self-assembly (2013)
Journal Article
Elaigwu, S. E., & Greenway, G. M. (2014). Biomass derived mesoporous carbon monoliths via an evaporation-induced self-assembly. Materials letters, 115, (117-120). doi:10.1016/j.matlet.2013.10.019. ISSN 0167-577X

Evaporation-induced self-assembly has been applied in the synthesis of crack-free mesoporous carbon monolith with good mechanical stability using a waste plant material as carbon precursor and triblock copolymer F127 as template. The carbon monolith... Read More
