Abstract

The chemical and physical conditions used in the synthesis of activated carbon, an adsorbent used in water filtration,influence the specific surface area andporosity. In this paper, coconut shells werethe raw material and activation reagents such as Hydrochloric acid, Zinc Chloride and Phosphoric Acid were used. A single and double burn procedurewas carried out for each method. The activated carbon obtained was compared in terms of absorption capacity, bulk density, BET surface area and pore volume. The best results were yielded for activated carbon prepared withphosphoric acid using the single burn technique
