Wood, coal, graphite, carbon black

Wood, coal, graphite, carbon black

In the case of powdery carbon materials, of course, the particle size distribution plays a crucial role for the characterization, while for granulated samples, the meso- and macropores are often the focus of attention. Investigation of micropores are relevant for both powdery and granulated samples, since the micropores usually exhibit a major part of the specific surface area, and most of the exchange and sorption processes take place there. Activated carbons belong to special carbons and adsorbents. Wood, coal, graphite and carbon blacks mostly possess moderate specific surfaces, which are used for other applications. Specifically carbon blacks used as fillers for car tires have led to a special parameter, the so-called STSA surface area, which is measured by gas adsorption and requires a BET analyzer.
