UNT Researchers Create New, Stronger Plant-based Carbon Fiber

Researchers at the University of North Texas have created a new carbon fiber from plants that can replace common petroleum and coal-based products in wide range of goods including parts for cars, aircraft, electronics and sports equipment. The patent-pending carbon fiber also is stronger and lighter than similar products on the market.

The new carbon fiber is made from C-lignin, a linear polymer that was discovered by UNT Distinguished Research Professor Richard Dixon and Research Professor Fang Chen in 2012 and reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
