The oxidation of toluene sorbed on activated carbon in the presence of H(2)O(2) and manganese oxide.

We investigated the oxidation of toluene sorbed on activated carbon (AC) in the presence of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) and pyrolusite (MnO(2)). Sorbed toluene was prepared by reacting a toluene-saturated solution and AC. The amounts of sorbed toluene (mg of toluene/g of AC) decreased as the amounts of AC were increased. The reaction was conducted in a gas… CONTINUE READING
