Herstellung von Kohlenstoff-Nanomaterialien Ziel einer Bayreuther Forschungskooperation

17.05.2004


Untersuchungen zur Herstellung von Kohlenstoff-Nanomaterialien, um einen massentauglichen Herstellprozess für diese neuartigen Materialien zu entwickeln, sind Ziel einer neuen Bayreuther Forschungskooperation.

Untersuchungen zur Herstellung von Kohlenstoff-Nanomaterialien, um einen massentauglichen Herstellprozess für diese neuartigen Materialien zu entwickeln, werden jetzt im Rahmen eines Forschungskooperation zwischen dem Lehrstuhl für Chemische Verfahrenstechnik der Fakultät für Angewandte Naturwissenschaften/FAN (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Jess) und der Firma FutureCarbon (Kompetenzzentrum Neue Materialien in Bayreuth) vorgenommen. Das Projekt wird vom Bayerischen Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Verkehr und Technologie gefördert und hat eine Laufzeit von Jan. 2004 bis Okt. 2006.

Die Kohlenstoff-Nanomaterialien (sogenannte Multi-Walled-Nanotubes, Platelet-Nanofaser oder Herringbone-Nanofaser) bilden sich aus kohlenstoffhaltigen Gasen (CO, Ethen...). Diese werden über einen geeigneten Katalysator geleitet, auf dem die Fasern aufwachsen. Für die endgültige Form und Art der Nanofaser sind die Temperatur, die Kontaktzeit, die Zusammensetzung des Gases sowie die Art des Katalysators von entscheidender Bedeutung, da sie den Abstand der Graphit-Schichten, die Orientierung der Schichten und die Breite der Fasern beeinflussen.



Bisher werden Kohlenstoff-Nanomaterialien nur im Labormaßstab und überwiegend diskontinuierlich hergestellt. Die typischen Ausbeuten liegen daher nur im Bereich von mg bis g. Für einen breiten Einsatz in der Batterietechnik oder in neuen Verbundmaterialien werden allerdings große Mengen des neuartigen Kohlenstoff-Materials benötigt. Neben systematischen Grundlagenuntersuchungen in Laboranlagen soll im Forschungsprojekt eine Technikumsanlage entwickelt und aufgebaut werden, in der Proben im Kilogrammmaßstab produziert werden können.

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
