Sodium borohydride hydrolysis over mesoporous spherical carbon obtained from jasmine flower extract
In this contribution, we have utilized Jasmine flower (Tabernaemontana divaricata) extract as a green source during the synthesis of carbon under hydrothermal conditions. Phase characterization indicated that the prepared material is graphitic carbon with various functional groups. TEM images revealed that the prepared material is composed of quasispherical particles having diameters in the 15 nm range, which are accumulated in ... Read more
