Free-radical reaction synthesis of carbon by nitrogenous organic molecules and CCl4

Abstract

Carbonaceous materials are widely used materials in energy storage, biomedicine and electronics. Although many improvements had been achieved in this issue, synthesis of carbon without using any metal catalyst or reducing agent is still a challenge, especially in low temperature condition. In this paper, we illuminate a free radical mechanism for synthesis of amorphous carbon hollow spheres in large scale through the reaction between CCl4 and N, N-Dimethylformamide (DMF) at 200 oC. The investigation of reaction mechanism reveals the reaction possibility of CCl4 with other nitrogenous organic molecules, including dimethylacetamide (DMAC), hexamethylenetetramine (HMTA), diethylenetriamine (DETA), Diethylamine (DEA), Ethylenediamine (EN), and 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone (NMP). The present synthentic methodology provides a non-metal ion participated route to synthesize carbonaceous materials with organic molecules at low temperature.
