I am doing my research on synthesis carbon mesoporous.I have a question related to the carbonization. does the rate of flow gas determine the structural/ to produce good carbon mesoporous? Our planet is in danger; the carbon dioxide level in our atmosphere is reaching 400 ppm, the highest level ever reached - our planet is warming up. I think we should focus more on how to plant trees, and the mis... Wouldn’t it be great to have a learning game to use in your chemistry class that was more than a memory drill, but actually helped your student’s to build a deeper understanding of chemistry?
