X-ray microtomography was used to study the stability and homogeneity of concentrated carbon nanotube (CNT) aqueous suspensions and CNT/resorcinol–formaldehyde gel composites. Various CNT distribution states were achieved by modifying the CNT concentration, sonication time and resting time. X-ray microtomography is able to discriminate between zones with different CNT concentration levels and can be used as a non-destructive and fast tool to characterize the homogeneity of suspensions and composite systems at the micron scale.

The effect of physical activation with CO2 of carbon xerogels, synthesized by pyrolysis of a resorcinolformaldehyde aqueous gel, on the adsorption capacities of Methylene Blue (MB) was studied. The activation with CO2 lead to carbon materials with micropore volumes ranging from 0.28 to 0.98 cm³/g -1 C. MB-adsorption isotherm studies showed that the increase of micropore volume and corresponding surface area led to: (i) a significant improvement in the capacity of MB-adsorption at monolayer coverage, from 212 to 714 mgg -1 C, and (ii) an increase of the binding energy related to Langmuir isotherm constant up to 45 times greater than those of commercial microporous activated carbons used as reference (NORIT R2030, CALGON BPL and CALGON NC35). It is proposed that the increase of the binding energy results from chemical cleaning of the O-groups onto carbon surface as a consequence of CO2-activation, increasing the π-π interaction between MB and graphene layers of the carbon xerogels. Finally, a series of batch kinetics were performed to investigate the effect of CO2-activation conditions on the mechanism of MB-adsorption. Experimental data were fitted using pseudo-first-order, pseudo-second-order and intraparticle diffusion kinetic models. From pseudo-second-order kinetic model, one observes an increase in the initial rate of MB-adsorption from 0.019 to 0.0565 min -1, by increasing the specific surface area from 630 to 2180 m²/g -1 C via CO2-activation. Depending on the activation degree of the carbons, two different mechanisms control the MB-adsorption rate: (i) at low activation degree, the intraparticle diffusion is the rate-limiting phenomenon, whereas (ii) at high activation degree, the reactions occurring at the solid/liquid interface are the rate-limiting steps. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

Carbon xerogels synthesized with a fixed resorcinol/sodium carbonate molar ratio (R/C) were physically activated using CO2. The effect of activation temperature and activation time on the final properties of the activated carbon xerogels was evaluated. The specific surface area increases from ~600 m2 g-1 to 2000 m2 g-1 and more by increasing the temperature and duration of the activation step. A comparison between physical activation with CO2 and chemical activation with hydroxides was also performed: it was found that both processes produce an increase of the micropore volume and specific surface area without altering the meso-macroporosity developed during the synthesis. However, chemical activation can lead to the development of the narrow microporosity mainly whereas, in physical activation, the widening of the narrow micropores takes place whatever the process conditions.
