These are preliminary reports that have not been peer-reviewed. They should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or be reported in news media as established information. For more information, please see our FAQs.
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Monolithic open macroporous
carbons of 80-85 % porosity are obtained from pyrolyzing oxidized high
internal phase templated poly(dicyclopentadiene) foams. The macropores
void diameters of the resulting carbon foams can be ajusted between 87
and 2.5 mikrometer simply by changing the surfactant amount used in the
preparation of the precursor foams. The resulting porous carbon
materials are charcterized by a carbon content >97%, an electronic
conductivity of up to 2800 S/m, a Young's modulus of up to 2.1 GPa and a
specific surface area of up to 1200 m2/g.
