A New Carbon Material Synthesized from Coconut Shell
Abstract:A new carbon was synthesized from coconut shell in oxygen free atmosphere at 700 °C. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDAX) and micro-Raman spectroscopy. An electrical property of sample was studied using four probes set up which showed an ohmic property. An application of alternating current between 0.5 to 1.5 A has explored the light emission property of the carbon.
