Abstract: This article investigated new macro-cellular carbons, called carbon meringues, formed by whipping an aqueous solution of tannin until liquid foam is obtained. Carbon meringues were fully investigated, and thermal conductivity was analyzed using the Hot Disk TPS 2500 transient plane source method. Thermal conductivity of carbon meringues was found to be slightly higher than that of tannin-based CVC foams of low density. Carbon meringues maintained higher mechanical strength in the same range of density.
