Porous Carbon Material

Return to list

Project Overview

Porous carbon material is a three-dimensional grid carbon material. Compared with activated carbon material, it has high conductivity and high specific surface area. It has a very wide range of applications in the fields of energy storage equipment, catalysts and adsorbents. At present, the domestic supercapacitor market alone has reached RMB 7 billion, and the market for drinking water purification products has reached RMB 13 billion.

This project uses a conjugated polymer framework as a precursor to obtain layered porous carbon materials under high temperature conditions. The current specific surface area of the product is 4,073 m2/g, which is a world record level. Through the research of this project, the pilot production of porous carbon materials can be realized. In terms of application research, the aim is to take advantage of the ultra-high specific surface area and preparation process of this porous carbon material to prepare a drinking water filter element material with low cost and excellent treatment effect; in addition, to give play to the high conductivity characteristics of this material through effective mesopores The design and adjustment of the supercapacitor products with higher capacitance per unit volume have been prepared.

Spin-out: Tanovus

Based on the innovation by a world's top university, Tanovus focuses on research and production of one of a kind, micro-nano structural materials, derived carbon-based materials and related composites. Our products are used as high-efficiency adsorbents, filter materials, electrode materials, catalysts/catalyst support with a high-performance cost ratio in the applications of energy, environmental protection, health and other fields.

Tanovus solved the challenge of precise manipulation of the micro-nano structure of polymers and derived carbon-based materials. Custom design of each structure in the polymerization process results in the flexible production of high-performance functional materials. Its technology is simple, controllable and adjustable, with the use of commodity chemicals. The characteristics of the produced high purity materials can be flexibly customized, and the production is easy to scale up.

With a world's leading R&D team, Tanovus will continue to innovate and develop advanced new materials to create valuable products for the market needs.
