Porous Carbon Prepared by a Template-Like Method Using Non-Porous Pumice Mineral as Template
Porous carbons have been prepared by a template-like method using non-porous pumice mineral as a “template”, and sucrose and furfuralcohol as carbon sources. Nitrogen adsorption and scanning electric microscope (SEM) have been used to investigate the pore structure and morphology of the samples. The study results indicate that the surface areas of the carbons prepared from sucrose and furfuralcohol are 208 and 268 m2/g, respectively. The carbon prepared from sucrose is microporous, and the carbon prepared from furfuralcohol is a carbon with both micropores and mesopores.
