Abstract / Full Text

The electrochemical reduction of polytrifluorochloroethylene suspended in an electrolyte using organic electron transfer mediators led to surface modification of the polymer. Pyrolysis of the reduction product was accompanied by the formation of a highly porous thermally stable polycarbon material with pore sizes in a very wide range, approximately from 1 to 105 nm.
