MAST Carbon was founded in 1995 from the Carbon and Catalysis Team at the British Petroleum Research Centre, in this previous form it was responsible for supporting the requirements of a global company with expertise in carbon materials.

The Company has continued to develop its own carbon related technology as well as participate in collaborative programs, provide Research and Development capability to other organisations and operate as Consultants.

Our primary expertise is the properties and application of porous carbons, generically called activated carbon but this covers materials from nanoporous materials through the IUPAC defined meso and macro pore region. We are also involved in some structural carbon materials

We do work with some traditional materials, but for demanding applications carbons derived from synthtic raw materials are required and we have extensive experience in this area.
