CKLCM grew out of the Laboratory of Carbon Materials of ICC, which was founded in 1962 and is one of China’s oldest setups engaged in R&D of carbon materials. CKLCM mainly addresses basic scientific problems and core and common technologies in new carbon materials preparation. CKLCM also attaches importance to applied engineering technologies of new carbon materials.
Main research fields of CKLCM are: high performance carbon fiber and its composite materials, high performance and multi-functional carbon materials at extreme circumstances, porous functional carbon materials and nano carbon materials. CKLCM has won more than 20 national, ministerial and provincial awards in recent years. CKLCM takes a domestically leading position in high performance carbon materials, high heat conductivity carbon materials and superhigh specific surface area carbon materials, etc. Some of CKLCM’s achievements have been put into use in industries.
