Abstract

By distributing boehmite nanofibers to a resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) skeletal phase formed by phase separation in an aqueous sol, composite macroporous monoliths were produced by performing gelation, aging, and drying processes at 60 °C. In the nanofiber-reinforced structure, boehmite nanofiber is arranged in parallel within the RF skeleton and showed high Young's modulus against uniaxial compression for their bulk density. These materials can be expected to be applied to heat/flame protection materials using their heat insulating properties and high flame resistance.
