Preparation and properties of porous carbon material containing magnesium oxide

Porous carbons loaded with magnesium oxide were prepared through one-step process. Poly(ethylene terephthalate) and natural magnesite were used as carbon source and MgO precursor, respectively. An impact of a temperature and relative amounts of raw components used for preparations on the textural parameters of resulting hybrid materials is presented and discussed. As found, pore structure parameters tend to decrease along with MgO loading and temperature used during preparation process. Micropore area is the parameter being reduced primarily.
