Four-day Workshop by Illinois Professor

          Workshop by Illinois Professor at Vali-e-Asr University of Rafsanjan           


 
 

A 4-day workshop on “INTRODUCTION TO CARBON SCEINCE AND ENGINEERING” was conducted by Professor Masoud Rostam-Abadi from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign at Vali-e-Asr University of Rafsanjan on September 1-4, 2016.
This Workshop was an introduction to carbon materials and covered topics related to their preparation and characterization methods, and applications in energy and environmental fields and various industries.

 
Workshop scheduling

Day 1

a)     History of carbon materials
b)    Preparation of different carbon materials (activated carbon, activated carbon fiber, carbon molecular sieve, carbon nanotube, carbon black, metallurgical coke, etc.)


Day 2
c)     Physico-chemical characterization of carbon materials
d)    Adsorption theory and experimental procedures

Day 3

e)     Applications of carbon materials to energy and environmental applications (methane storage, mercury emission control, and volatile organic compound (VOC)  capture, liquid-phase application.
