New Class of Carbon-Based Adsorbents Developed

ISGS chemical engineers, along with faculty and students from the University of Illinois Department of Chemistry and Environmental Engineering, have developed a process for synthesizing a new class of carbon-based materials. The energy and environmental applications of these carbon products are currently being investigated. An invention disclosure describing the process, products, and potential uses of these novel carbons has been prepared for submission to the Office of Technology Management at the University of Illinois and to Electric Power Research Institute.
