The present application is directed to methods for preparation of polymer particles in gel form and carbon materials made therefrom. The carbon materials comprise enhanced electrochemical properties and find utility in any number of electrical devices, for example, as electrode material in ultracapacitors or batteries. The methods herein can also be employed generally to improve emulsion and/or suspension polymerization processes by improved control of diffusion of acidic and basic species between the polymer and secondary phases.

Activated carbon products and methods for making same. In one example, activated carbon products can have a specific surface area of at least 3,050 m2/g to about 7,000 m2/g, a pore volume of about 3 cm3/g to about 10 cm3/g, and an average pore size of about 0.5 nm to about 150 nm. In one example, activated carbon products can be made by reacting a hydroxybenzene compound and an aldehyde compound in the presence of a solvent to produce a prepolymer. The prepolymer and an additive can be reacted to produce a wet gel product that can be dried, pyrolized, and activated to produce an activated carbon product. The activated carbon product can have a specific surface area of about 100 m2/g to about 7,000 m2/g, a pore volume of about 0.2 cm3/g to about 10 cm3/g, and/or an average pore size of about 0.5 nm to about 150 nm.

Methods for making lignocellulose composite products can include combining a plurality of lignocellulose substrates, calcium lignosulfonate, and a free radical precursor to produce a mixture. The free radical precursor can include an oxidant and a catalyst. The mixture can be at least partially cured to produce a lignocellulose composite product.


Wet strengthened fiber products, wet strengthening resins, and methods for making such wet strengthened fiber products and wet strengthening resins. The wet strengthened fiber product can include a fiber web and an at least partially cured wet strengthening resin, which prior to at least partially curing, the wet strengthening resin can include a polyamide- epihalohydrin (PAE) resin and a cationic styrene maleimide (SMI) resin. The PAE resin can include a reaction product of a polyamidoamine and an epihalohydrin and the cationic SMI resin can include a reaction product of a styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymer and an amine. The wet strengthened fiber product can include the wet strengthening resin in an amount of about 0.05 wt% to about 5 wt%, based on a dried weight of the wet strengthened fiber product.


In some examples, a method for making a composite product can include combining a plurality of lignocellulose substrates, one or more complexed metal catalysts, one or more complexing agents, and one or more oxidants to produce a lignocellulose binder mixture and heating the lignocellulose binder mixture to produce a composite product. The lignocellulose binder mixture can have a molar ratio of the complexing agent to the complexed metal catalyst of about 0.1 or greater.
