Abstract:

Research efforts reported here include the following i To manufacture high strength 5.5 GPa high modulus 350 GPa carbon fibers from polyacrylonitrile PAN copolymers. ii To manufacture low density hollow carbon fibers. iii To reduce energy used in carbon fiber manufacturing. iv To manufacture carbon fibers from PANcellulose nano crystals CNC and PANlignin blends. v To manufacture PANBNNT based carbon fibers. Modeling studies have been used to provide guidance to this effort. Results of these studies are summarized and documented in this report. In addition, the results that have implications beyond carbon fiber manufacturing are also presented.
