Synthesis and Characterization of Nanoporous Carbon Materials; The Effect of Surfactant Concentrations and Salts
Nanoporous carbon framework was synthesized using phenol and formaldehyde as carbon precursors and triblock copolymer (pluronic F127) as soft template via evaporation induced self-assembly. Hexagonal mesoporous carbon with specific surface area of 350 m2/g through optimizing the situation was obtained. The effects of different surfactant/phenol molar ratio and presence of salts on specific surface area, pore size and pore volume for all the prepared samples were studied by means of the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) formalism, powder X-ray diffraction technique and FT-IR spectroscopy.
