Abstract
Porous iron with woodlike microstructures was prepared from two kinds of wood templates through a developed biotemplating method in the present work. The biomorphic iron oxide was first produced through infiltration and sintering procedures, and was then reduced to the biomorphic iron in a hydrogen atmosphere at high temperatures (600 degrees C and 1000 degrees C). The morphologies of iron and iron oxide products were observed using SEM and FESEM, and their crystal structures were identified using X-ray diffraction. The results indicate that the pure iron phase can be obtained after the reduction process and the products faithfully retained the microstructures of the corresponding wood templates.
