Abstract

In this study, methylene blue and iodine numbers were used to optimize the conditions of preparation of activated carbons from renewable and low cost precursors. Standard methods of determining iodine number and methylene blue absorption were applied. These were used to model surface area and pore volume. Each carbon prepared under different experimental conditions was characterized with the goal of using the data as a response factor in the determination of optimum preparation conditions for each carbon.
