Thermal, chemical and morphological properties of carbon fibres derived from chemically pre-treated wool fibres

Hassan, Mohammad Mahbubul (2015) Thermal, chemical and morphological properties of carbon fibres derived from chemically pre-treated wool fibres. RSC Advances, 5. pp. 55353-55362.

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Hassan, Mohammad Mahbubul
Description:

In this work, the feasibility of using wool fibre as a carbon fibre precursor was explored as well as whether chemical treatments to wool fibre can increase the carbon fibre yield and properties of the produced carbon fibres. Wool fibres were treated with a range of chemicals including lignin, tannic acid, polystyrene sulphonate, and chlorine in conjunction with a polyamide resin. The treated fibres were stabilised in air at 160 °C followed by pyrolysis at 800 °C under a nitrogen atmosphere. The resulting carbon fibres were characterised in terms of carbon yield, tensile strength, surface roughness, porosity, crystal structure and surface hydrophobicity.
