Abstract

Acrylic fibres can be used as a source of carbon structures. The reason is in chemical structure and thermal behaviour of acrylic polymer which is not melt-able and contains high quantity of carbon. Acrylic fibres are one of typical wastes from textile industry.Until recently these fibres are burnt or dumped as garbage. In this study an easy method is presented to prepare nanostructural spherical carbon particles with diameter around one micrometre. Particles are prepared at 500°C in oven with protection against oxidation. These particles are evaluated by standard methods.

Keywords: acrylic, fibres, waste, carbon, recycling
