(2007 – 2009)
Tannin Based Carbon Foams
New organic precursors for carbon foams. Characterisation of the carbonization process through GC-MS and MALDI-ToF analysis. Determination of physical properties of the carbonaceous material. Image analysis. Chemical activation.
Project carried out during the PhD in collaboration with various institutions. CNRS-IJL, University of Liege and CNRS- ENSC Mulhouse.
