Tannin Based Carbon Foams
Development and optimization of foam formulation. Chemical and physical characterisation of the foam structure. Evaluation of the property changes determined by the presence of specific additives. Targeted modifications for the synthesis of materials with improved compression resistance and water absorption.
Project developed during the PhD in collaboration with various institutes including: Silva Chimica (S.Michele Mondoví), CNRS-Promes (Perpignan) and the University of Liegi.
