Synthesis of Ordered Mesoporous Carbon Using MCM-41 Mesoporous Silica as Template


Article Preview

Mesoporous carbon with high surface area and ordered structure was synthesized via a nanocasting process using mesoprous MCM-41 silica as a template and sucrose as a carbon precursor. Sample was characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM and nitrogen adsorption. The results show that the templated carbon has a BTE surface area ∼1200 m2/g, a pore volume ∼1.0 cm3/g, and a bimodal porosity centered at around 4 nm and 46 nm.
