Synthesis of structured silicon carbide materials can be accomplished using wooden materials as the carbon source, with various silicon impregnation techniques. We have explored the low cost synthesis of SiC by impregnation of carbon from wood with SiO gas at high temperatures, which largely retains the structure of the starting wood (shape memory synthesis). Suitably structured, porous SiC could prove to be an important type of catalyst support material. Shape memory synthesis (SMS) has earlier been tried on high surface area carbon materials. Here we have made an extensive study of SMS on carbon structures obtained from different types of wood. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.

Cyclodextrin-functionalized mesostructured silica nanoparticles for removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons Topuz F.; Uyar T. (Academic Press Inc., 2017)Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are the byproducts of the incomplete combustion of carbon-based fuels, and have high affinity towards DNA strands, ultimately exerting their carcinogenic effects. They are ...
