Adsorption of low-concentration H2S on manganese dioxide-loaded activated carbon

Adsorption of low-concentration H2S on manganese dioxide-loaded activated carbon Manganese dioxide-loaded activated carbon (AC) absorbents (MnO2/AC) were prepared and characterized by XRD, N2 adsorption–desorption, BET, and SEM. A mixture of H2S and N2 was used to evaluate the performance of absorbents in a fixed adsorption bed for H2S removal. Results show that the specific surface area decreased from 580.4 to 390.9 m2 g−1 with modification of manganese dioxide and the topography changed significantly. A suitable H2S removal activity was obtained with a manganese dioxide-to-AC ratio of 1:1, drying temperature of 393 K, and drying time of 24 h. At the adsorption temperature of 313 K and a flow rate of 20 ml min−1, the H2S breakthrough capacity of 110.7 mg g−1 was observed. Comparing with the unmodified AC, H2S breakthrough capacity increased by 96.9 mg g−1. The kinetics of adsorptive removal of H2S over the MnO2/AC adsorbent followed the Bangham model, $$\ln \frac{0.1181}{0.1181 - q} = 3.002t^{1.352}$$ ln 0.1181 0.1181 - q = 3.002 t 1.352 .
