Article
The microstructure and amplitude dependences of the Young’s modulus E and internal friction (logarithmic decrement δ), and microplastic properties of biocarbon matrices BE-C(Fe) obtained by beech tree carbonization at temperatures Tcarb = 850–1600°C in the presence of an iron-containing catalyst are studied. By X-ray diffraction analysis and transm...
Article
A facile and low-cost method has been employed to fabricate MnO2/C hybrid materials for use as binder-free electrodes for supercapacitor applications. Biocarbon monoliths were obtained through pyrolysis of beech wood, replicating the microstructure of the cellulosic precursor, and serve as 3D porous and conductive scaffolds for the direct growth of...
Article
We report here on controlled synthesis, characterization and electrochemical properties of different polymorphs of niobium pentoxides grown by CVD of new single-source precursors. Nb2O5 films deposited at different temperatures showed systematic phase evolution from low-temperature tetragonal (TT-Nb2O5, T-Nb2O5) to high temperature monoclinic modif...

Catalytic hydrogen combustion was studied with H2/air mixtures in conditions that simulate the H2 concentration of the exhaust gases from fuel cells (3-4% v/v H2 in air). Pt-impregnated monoliths based on porous biomorphic SiC (bio-SiC) substrates were employed for the first time for this reaction. Capillary forces were exploited for the incipient...
Article
Natural polymers are a promising alternative for reducing the environmental impact of batteries. For this reason, it is still necessary to study their behavior and implement its use in these devices, especially in separator membranes. This work reports on new separator membranes based on silk fibroin (SF) and silk sericin (SS) prepared by salt leac...

Circular Economy In the context of circular economy concepts, the use/re-use of multifunctional materials emerges as a needed approach for a sustainable future. In article number 2100046, Carlos M. Costa, Senentxu Lanceros-Mendez, and co-workers, report on the development of hybrid PVDF-TrFE/TiO2 membranes for lithium-ion battery and photocatalytic...

Circular economy paradigms will benefit materials with multifunctional properties allowing to be implemented in more than one application, after processed, or in one application after already being used in another. In this context, membranes based on TiO2/Poly(vinylidene fluoride‐co‐trifluoroethylene) (PVDF‐TrFE) with different filler contents were...
Article
The rational design of electrodes mimicking the cellular structure of natural bio-resources has been a matter of increasing interest for applications in energy storage. Due to their anisotropic and hierarchical porosity, monolithic carbon materials from natural wood precursors are appealing as electrodes for supercapacitor applications due to their...
Article
Full-text available
A simple, low-cost and environmentally friendly method has been used to obtain highly porous biomorphic carbon monoliths with a good combination of interconnected macro-, meso-and microporosity, and good electrical conductivity and mechanical strength, making these biocarbon materials interesting for electrochemical applications as binder-free elec...
Article
The industrial development of Li metal solid state batteries will be boosted not only by providing highly Li⁺ conductive electrolyte materials, but also by demonstrating their technical viability in the actual device. For the first time, the electrochemical performances of two different electrolytes, a pure Li7La3Zr2O12 ceramic and a polymer–cerami...
Article
The effect of partial graphitization on electrical and galvanomagnetic properties of BE-C(Fe) biomorphic carbons produced by beech wood carbonization at temperatures of 850–1600°C in the presence of an iron-containing catalyst is studied. The use of an Fe catalyst at Тcarb ≥ 1000°C leads to the formation of nanoscale graphite-phase inclusions; its...
Article
The microdeformation has been investigated under uniaxial compression of beech-derived biocarbons partially graphitized during carbonization in the presence of a Ni- or Fe-containing catalyst. The strength and ultimate fracture strain have been determined at different temperatures of carbonization of the samples in the absence or in the presence of...
Article
The thermal conductivity k and resistivity ρ of biocarbon matrices, prepared by carbonizing medium-density fiberboard at T carb = 850 and 1500°C in the presence of a Ni-based catalyst (samples MDF-C( Ni)) and without a catalyst (samples MDF-C), have been measured for the first time in the temperature range of 5–300 K. X-ray diffraction analysis has...

Article
The electrical and galvanomagnetic properties of partially graphitized highly porous bioC(Ni) biocarbon matrices produced by pyrolysis (carbonization) of beech wood at temperatures T carb = 850–1600°C in the presence of a Ni-containing catalyst have been studied in comparison with their microstructural features. The temperature dependences of the r...
Article
Porous graphitic carbons were successfully obtained from wood precursors through pyrolysis using a transition metal as catalyst. Once the catalyst is removed, the resulting material mimics the microstructure of the wood and presents high surface area, open and interconnected porosity and large pore volume, high crystallinity and good electrical con...

Using X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy, it h...
Article
Porous graphitic carbons were obtained from wood precursors using Ni as a graphitization catalyst during pyrolysis. The structure of the resulting material retains that of the original wood precursors with highly aligned, hierarchical porosity.

The uniaxial compression strength under stepped loading and the 325-nm-stepped deformation rate of biocarbon samples obtained by carbonization of beech wood at different temperatures in the 600-1600°C range have been measured using high-precision interferometry. It has been shown that the strength depends on the content of nanocrystalline phase in...

Conference Paper
Mesoporous substrates derived from carbonized wood (biomorphic carbon, BioC) were functionalized by the plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of palladium precursors. The palladium deposits were analyzed by SEM, EDX and ICP-MS methods. Noble metals immobilized on porous supports are promising candidates for sustainable heterogeneous catalysis a...

Microstructural characteristics and amplitude dependences of the Young modulus E and of internal friction (logarithmic decrement δ) of bio-carbon matrices prepared from beech tree wood at different carbonization temperatures T carb ranging from 600 to 1600°C have been studied. The dependences E( T carb) and δ( T carb) thus obtained revealed two lin...

Samples of β-SiC/Si ecoceramics with a silicon concentration of ∼21 vol % have been prepared using a series of consecutive procedures (carbonization of sapele wood biocarbon, synthesis of high-porosity biocarbon with channel-type pores, infiltration of molten silicon into empty channels of the biocarbon, formation of β-SiC, and retention of residua...
