carbonization

[‚kär·bə·nə′zā·shən]
(chemistry)
The conversion of a carbon-containing substance to carbon or a carbon residue as the destructive distillation of coal by heat in the absence of air, yielding a solid residue with a higher percentage of carbon than the original coal; carried on for the production of coke and of fuel gas.
(geochemistry)
In the coalification process, the accumulation of residual carbon by changes in organic material and their decomposition products.
Deposition of a thin film of carbon by slow decay of organic matter underwater.
A process of converting a carbonaceous material to carbon by removal of other components.

This is due to incomplete carbonization at the low carbonizing temperature.
However, it is necessary to investigate the surface conditions to verify the relationship between the carbonizing temperature and the far-infrared ray emission properties because the far-infrared emission generally shows different properties with respect to the surface conditions of the specimen.
This study investigated far-infrared ray emission and electrical properties according to the carbonizing temperature and PF resin impregnation ratio of woodceramics manufactured using thinned logs.
Electric resistivity of woodceramics by carbonizing temperature.
At a carbonizing temperature of 600[degrees]C, the density was 0.
Figure 2 shows sample weight loss in relation to resin impregnation percentage and carbonizing temperature.
Linear shrinkage had a tendency to decrease slightly with increasing resin impregnation percentages at all temperatures, but increased with increasing carbonizing temperatures at all impregnation levels.
