Porous Carbon (CNovel™)

CNovel™has a special, high-mesoporous structure which is unlike that of typical carbon materials like activated carbon. It is a new carbon material which has been considered difficult to obtain as an industrial material.

Application

Electrochemical applications for EDLC

CNovel, loaded platinum, can be applied to the electrode catalyst for fuel cells.
By dispersing and loading platinum nanoparticles into the pores in an optimal condition, the electrode catalyst, MH-18-PT50, brings out high performance.

Adsorption/desorption application: Flow filtration, Selective adsorption

CNovel™ has quick adsorption performance compared to general activated carbon. Quick adsorption/concentration leads to shortening of process time and downsizing of processing equipment. Enable large molecules(e.g. protein, enzyme) separation and adsorption on designed mesopore size.
