Carbide Derived Carbon Coatings on Carburized Ti-6Al-4V Surfaces by Molten Salt Electrolysis

thesis
posted on 01.08.2019 by Leqing Yang
Carbide Derived Carbon (CDC) is a porous nano-material that have been used in gas storage, battery, and supercapacitor. Chlorine gas is used to produced CDC on the substrate by etching it. However, chlorine is toxic and not environmentally friendly, and also difficult to transport. Also, the temperature and time in this process is hard to use in industry. This study is focus on an environmental friendly and effective method using reactive anode electrolysis in molten chloride salts is presented as an alternative process for synthesizing CDC. The results shown by Raman spectroscopy shows that this method can produce CDC coatings on TI-6Al-4V substrate.
