- ... In this paper, we report the low-cost synthesis of a highly functionalized carbon material synthesized through controlled acid dehydration of glycerol. Physical properties were investigated using scanning and transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, and dynamic light scattering. Chemical properties were determined using elemental analysis, acid-base titratio ...
