Paper Title:
Physicochemical Properties of Carbons Prepared from Physic Nut Waste by Phosphoric Acid and Potassium Hydroxide Activations
  Abstract

Char derived from pyrolysis of physic nut waste at 400-800°C was used for the preparation of activated carbon by chemical impregnation of phosphoric acid and potassium hydroxide. The original char exhibited the BET surface area in the range of 120-250 m2·g-1. The surface area increased to 480 and 532 m2·g-1 when activated with H3PO4 and KOH, respectively. Equilibrium adsorption data was found to be best represented by the Langmuir isotherm with maximum monolayer adsorption capacity of 560.13 mg·g-1 at 30°C. The adsorption capacity of the physic nut residue activated carbon was comparable to commercial activated carbon.
