Influences of pyrolysis condition and acid treatment on properties of durian peel-based activated carbon.


Durian peel was used for the synthesis of activated carbon used for adsorption of Basic Green 4 dye. Activated carbon was synthesised under either nitrogen (N(2)) atmospheric or vacuum pyrolysis, followed by carbon dioxide (CO(2)) activation. The synthesised activated carbon then was treated with hydrochloric acid (HCl) solution. The results showed that… (More)
