Paper Title:
Effect of Base Material on the Pore Size Distribution and Surface Area of Activated Carbon
  Abstract

Powdered activated carbons were produced from palm kernel shells, corn cobs and cow bones by carbonization, pulverization and activation. The resulting granule has a surface area of 430.04 m2/g, 4022.15 m2/g and 733.60 m2/g respectively with controlled pore size. The characterized surface area enables the carbon to absorb vapors from gases, and substances from liquids. The surface properties are function of the base materials used in the preparation. Determinations of their adsorptive capacities show that activated carbon prepared from corn cobs has the highest adsorptive capacity. The surface properties are function of the base materials used in the preparation. Determinations of their adsorptive capacities show that activated carbon prepared from corn cobs has the highest adsorptive capacity.
