Abstract: Fabrication of ceramic materials containing high amount of porosity with controlled size and structure is a critical factor for various applications. In this study, porous alumina ceramics were prepared by addition of 5–30 vol% carbon black (CB) powders with different specific surface area (SSA) into the alumina matrix as a pore forming agent and application of partial sintering via spark plasma sintering (SPS) technique. After removal of CB particles from the ceramic structures, physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of the porous alumina ceramics were investigated. The open porosity level was detected between 38.48 and 59.81% depending on the type and amount of CB removed. The compressive strength of the sintered samples was measured as ?150 MPa, which is ?3 times higher than that of the conventionally sintered samples thanks to the strong neck formation between grains. The large pores formed by removal of CB agglomerates in case of using CB powders with SSA of 107 and 254 m2/g resulted in a change in thermal conduction mechanism from lattice vibration to thermal convection. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.
