Porous Carbon

Porous carbon materials, especially those containing nanopores, micropores or mespores, are being used in various applications such as super capacitors, specific adsorbents and catalyst supports. More recently a kind of glassy carbon has been used as a preform for the reaction forming of structural ceramics. Several structures prepared by different method are shown in Fig. 11.21 (Wang et al. 2003).
