Abstract

The preparation of activated carbons from bean pods by chemical (K(2)CO(3)) and physical (water vapor) activation was investigated. The carbon prepared by chemical activation presented more developed porous structure than one obtained by water vapor activation. Carbon adsorbent with very low ash content and developed micropore structure is obtained by thermochemical treatment with conc.H(2)SO(4) of liquid products from carbonization of bean pods and activation with water vapour.
