    Abstract

    Polyfurfuryl alcohol (PFA) and polyvinyl acetate (PVAC), known as typical nongraphitizing and graphitizing carbon precursors, respectively, were carbonized between the lamellae of montmorillonite (MONT). The carbons thereby obtained have nearly the same characteristics, e.g., film-like shape and highly stacked structure with small interplanar spacing. The spacing of the carbon from PFA is as small as 0.337 nm. The formation of such a unique carbon is attributed to the peculiar carbonization method where the two-dimensional space between MONT lamellae is utilized as a field for carbonization.
