A constituent of a carbon (or ceramic) artifact resulting from carbonization of the binder during baking.
@P04677@ are mainly used as binders, i.e. as precursors for @B00646@ cokes, but the term @B00646@ should include any carbonaceous @B00646@ material, for example thermosetting resins such as poly(furfuryl alcohol) or phenolics and similar compounds which may form a @C00974@ during @C00840@.
