The production of Coconut Shell Activated Carbon treated with
phosphoric acid was optimized using the response surface
methodology.Individual second-order response surface models were
developed and contour plots were generated for the optimization
A series of activated carbons was prepared from coconut shell
impregnated with phosphoric acid using a one-step carbonization
procedure and varying conditions in order to optimize preparation
parameters. The mode and nature of gaseous flow during
carbonization were found to affect the surface area and yield,
suggesting that oxygen derived from the gas phase may play an
important role in activation, and that coking of volatiles could
be contributing to the building of the porous structure.
These were all significantly more intense in the carbons prepared
with phosphoric acid as compared with a standard prepared using
Blue Forest supply Powder, Granular and Columnar Activated Carbon
for water treatment,Air purification.
