Effect of Processing Variables on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Microporous Carbon Materials

  • M. Singh (a1) and R. F. Dacek (a1)

Abstract

Microporous carbon materials with different pore and strut sizes have been fabricated by the pyrolysis of furfuryl alcohol resin, triethylene glycol, and p-toluene sulfonic acid mixtures. The resulting materials were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and density measurements. The room temperature flexural strength and modulus of these materials decreases with increasing amount of acid curing agent.
