The feasibility of preparing activated carbons from oil palm stones by one-step CO 2 activation was studied. These oil palm stones are major solid wastes generated from palm-oil processing mills. Experimental results showed that the particle size of the starting material and heating rate appeared...
Mesocarbon microbeads (MCMB) derived from petroleum residua and heat treated under different experimental conditions were characterised by X-ray and electron diffraction, proton magnetic resonance (PMR), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). The...
This work describes the development of porosity in activated carbon honeycomb structures. The honeycombs were fabricated from a combination of synthetic precursors, i.e., phenolic resins, along with several organic and inorganic additives, which allowed their extrusion at room temperature as well...
