Mission of CH-RG

As well as our country has backround on the production and usage of carbon nano materials, there is still a significant lack of substructure. In this regard, production and development of carbon materials and usage in hydrogen storage and other applications, solving the basic problems such as increasing qualified employee seems as the essential parameters of global competition in science and technology.

Carbon Based Materials and Hydrogen Research Group (CRG) aims to develop carbon based materials which can take place of existing technologies in hydrogen storage process and which can be used in different fields (sensors, data storage devices, flat panel displays, filter membranes, chips etc.).

Within this scope, CRG has carried out both theoretical and experimental researchs in the issues of production, characterization, modification according to application and hydrogen storage of carbon based materials such as carbon nanotube, activated carbon, templated carbon and composite (with polymers and inorganic materials) materials.
