Two carbon samples, commercial wood-based carbons and laboratory-derived polymer-based carbon, were oxidized to two different levels of surface acidity. The resulting adsorbents were characterized using adsorption of nitrogen, potentiometric titration, FTIR, SEM/EDAX, and elemental analysis. On the carbons obtained, the adsorption of 4,6-dimethyldibenzothiophene (4,6-DMDBT) from hexadecane was carried out in the range of the initial concentrations between 10 and 150 ppmw sulfur. The results… CONTINUE READING
