General description

Starbons are mesoporous carbons synthesized by the carbonization of expanded mesoporous starch at high temperatures. Amylose and amylopectin polymer chains in starch self assemble to form large mesoporous structures. Starbons exhibit tunable surface energies and high volume. It can be readily functionalized. The unique features are hydrophobicity, graphite-like surface and chemical inertness.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

application

Carbon, mesoporous can be used in the fabrication of optoelectronic and energy storage devices such as supercapacitor, and lithium ion batteries. It can also be used in the formation of a hybrid support that acts as a green tool for water purification. It is a surface tunable material that finds usage in chromatography, catalysis and environmental remediation.
Starbons may be used as a stationary phase for liquid chromatography and as solid support for precious metal catalyst. Starbon supported Pd catalyst was used in a model Heck reaction of iodobenzene.

Our strategy is to synthesize mesoporous carbonaceous materials (“Starbons”) using mesoporous expanded starch as the precursor without the need for a templating agent.

Mesoporous Materials include a range of high surface area porous silicates with applications in gas adsorption, drug delivery, diagnostics and catalysis.

Mesoporous materials are formed by a self-assembly process from combined solutions of sol-gel precursors (e.g., metal alkoxides) and structure-directing amphiphiles, usually block-copolymers or surfactants.

Silica is a very popular inorganic nanomaterial used in a wide range of applications including fillers for rubber, catalyst supports, separation media, carriers in food and agriculture, and abrasive/anticaking agents in cosmetics. It is also widely believed to be an important material for biomedical applications for following reasons.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
