In this study, the influence of boron doping on structural and surface properties of carbon material synthesized by hydrothermal method was investigated, and the obtained results were compared with the previously published influence that boron has on characteristics of carbonized boron-doped hydrothermal carbons (CHTCB). Hydrothermal carbons doped with boron (HTCB), were obtained by hydrothermal synthesis of glucose solution with the different nominal concentrations of boric acid. It was found that glucose based hydrothermal carbon does not have developed porosity, and the presence of boron in their structure has insignificant influence on it. On the contrary, additional carbonization increases the specific surface area of the undoped sample, while the increase in boron content drastically decreases specific surface area. Boron doping leads to a decrease in the amount of surface oxygen groups, for both, hydrothermally synthesized and additionally carbonized material. Raman analysis showed that boron content does not affect the structural arrangement of HTCB samples, and Raman structural parameters show higher degree of disorder, compared to the CHTCB samples. Comparison of structural and surface characteristics of hydrothermal carbons and carbonized materials contributes to the study of the so far, insufficiently clarified influence that boron incorporation has on the material characteristics.
