Abstract: Nanoporous support materials were successfully synthesized from biomass via hydrothermal carbonization with base additives. This research study the effect of hydrothermal temperature (160-200 °C), hydrothermal time (4-24 h) and influence of base additive (NaOH, KOH, Na2CO3 and K2CO3) have been chosen in order to improve the surface structure. The samples have been characterized by scanning electron microscopy, nitrogen sorption, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The experimental results revealed that hydrothermal carbonization process and acid addition have effect on the properties of catalyst support. The results indicated that hydrothermal process at 200°C for 12 h and activation with KOH at 900°C for 2 h, exhibited the highest surface area, porosity and pore volume leading to increased distribution of metal on the carbon support.
Keywords: Biomass, Nanoporous carbon, Catalyst support, Hydrothermal carbonization.
