High performance activated carbon for benzene/toluene adsorption from industrial wastewater.

Abstract

A coal-tar-derived mesophase was chemically activated to produce a high surface area (~3200 m(2)/g) carbon with a porosity made up of both micropores and mesopores. Its adsorption capacities were found to be among the highest ever reported in literature, reaching values of 860 mg/g and 1200 mg/g for the adsorption of benzene and toluene, respectively, and… (More)
