Electrophoretic Deposition of Metal Nanoclusters at the Surface of Porous Materials
- 9 Downloads
Coating formation over the surface of a highly porous material on the basis of activated carbon fiber is considered. The coating is applied from a colloidal solution of metals, with the goal of producing electrodes and composite polymer structures. Experiments show that porous carbon materials may be metallized by means of metal nanoclusters (measuring 2–10 nm) on the basis of electrophoresis, without loss of the initial porosity.
