Abstract The new adsorbent was developed from impregnation of granular activated carbon (GAC) with MgO named GAC/MgO composite. The prepared GAC/MgO composite was a microporous material with the BET specific surface area of 1036 m 2 /g. Several functional groups including hydroxyl, methyl and methylene, aromatic C C, and carboxylic groups were identified on the surface of the GAC/MgO composite. The benzene adsorption potential of the GAC/MgO composite as compared with the GAC was investigated… CONTINUE READING
