Safety tests were conducted on cesium-loaded spherical resorcinol formaldehyde (SRF), resulting in a possible reclassification of the fire safety for the Cesium Ion Exchange Process System (CXP) emergency elution vessels, ...Read More
One-pot synthesis, characterization and properties of acid-catalyzed resorcinol/formaldehyde cross-linked silica aerogels and their conversion to hierarchical porous carbon monoliths
Aerogels are ultra-light, insulative, porous materials that have a wide variety of applications. The aim of this study was to synthesize resorcinol/formaldehyde (RF) cross-linked silica aerogels in one pot ...
