Porous carbons synthesized by KOH activation of petroleum coke can have high surface areas, over 3000 m(2)/g, and high CO(2) sorption capacity, over 15 wt % at 1 bar. This makes them attractive sorbents for carbon capture from combustion flue gas. Quenched solid density functional theory (QSDFT) analysis of high-resolution nitrogen-sorption data for such… CONTINUE READING
