Porous carbon materials are at the heart of many applications, including renewable energy storage and generation, due to their superior physical properties and availability. The environmentally-friendly production of these materials is crucial for a sustainable future.This book focuses on the transformation of sustainable precursors into functional, porous carbonaceous materials via the two most significant approaches: StarbonA (R) and Hydrothermal Carbonisation. Covering cutting-edge research and emerging areas, chapters cover applications of porous carbon materials in catalysis and separation science as well as in energy science. Moreover, the challenges of characterization of these materials and their commercialization are explained by worldwide experts. The content will be accessible and valuable to post-graduate students and senior researchers alike and it will serve as a significant reference for academics and industrialists working in the areas of materials science, catalysis and separation science.

Table of Contents

The search for new functional porous carbons; Starbons (R); Hydrothermal carbonisation; Characterisation of porous carbonaceous solids; Commercialisation

About the Author

Secondary Address: FMF - Freiburger Materialforschungszentrum Stefan-Meier-Strasse 21, 79104 Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. Dr. Rafael Luque is currently a Ramon y Cajal fellow in the Departamento de Quimica Organica of Universidad de Cordoba (UCO) in Spain. He got his Ph.D from Universidad de Cordoba (2002-2005), spending 9 months in the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence at York University under the supervision of Dr. Duncan Macquarrie. Following a 3 year postdoctoral in the Green Chemistry Centre under the supervision of Prof. James Clark (2005-2008), he returned back to UCO where he was recently granted a prestigious Ramon y Cajal Fellowship (2009-2014) coming up second at a national level in the broad area of Chemistry. Dr. Luque is co-author of more than 75 publications (2005-2010, h index= 14), 2 patents, more than 15 book chapters and 80+ international conference contributions (>15 oral presentations) including several invited and keynote speeches at International conferences. His work has received more than 450 citations (2005-2010) and in the past 5 years, with many recognitions to his work as hot articles, highlights in synfacts and other publications, press articles and journal covers. Dr. Luque is editor-in-chief of the book Handbook of biofuels production: processes and technologies to be published by Woodhead publishing/CRC Press in September 2010. Currently, Dr. Luque is also guest editor of a special issue of C-heteroatom couplings for the journal Current Organic Synthesis and co-editor (with Prof. Jose Goldemberg) of a biofuels themed issue for the journal Energy and Environmental Science from the RSC. His research interests are Green Chemistry applied to nanomaterials, supported metal/metal oxide nanoparticles on porous materials, heterogeneous catalysis and biofuels. CSIC, Spain


"This is a timely volume ... a good introduction for early stage researchers seeking to familiarise themselves with the field ... an in-depth report of porous carbon materials, their synthesis, and their applications ... Overall, the book gives an excellent introduction to the motivations and strategic significance of the field. The overview of materials, synthesis, and characterisation constitutes a useful reference for researchers in the field." -- JP Connolly
