Fabrication of porous carbons and mesoporous silica materials for energy storage and environmental applications
Sangchoom, Wantana (2016) Fabrication of porous carbons and mesoporous silica materials for energy storage and environmental applications. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
In the context of limited availability of fossil fuel and the impact of fossil-based energy utilization to the environment, novel porous materials have been extensively investigated for applications in environmentally friendly energy generation and storage. This thesis describes work wherein porous carbons and mesoporous silica materials have been systematically studied to include new synthesis strategies, material characterization. Two main themes of this thesis are, firstly, to investigate how porosity affects the utilization of activated carbons in energy storage and gas adsorption, and secondly, explore the stabilization of mesoporous silica materials.
