|Sudden heating of H3PO4-loaded coconut shell in CO2 flow to produce super activated carbon and its application for benzene adsorptioncoconutactivatedcarbon.com
Super activated carbons (SACs) can be widely used in adsorption and separation, but it remains challenging to find a facile method to prepare such SACs. In this research, we proposed to synthesize SACs via suddenly heating H3PO4-loaded coconut shell in CO2 flow, without using a traditional slow heating step. The utilization of sudden heating instead of slow heating was favorable for saving preparation time and controlling heating process. Moreover, the SAC prepared by sudden heating at impregnation ratio of 1 in CO2 flow showed a high specific surface area of 2648 m2/g. The SAC made at impregnation ratio of 2 showed a large pore volume of 1.762 cm3/g, superior benzene adsorption capacity (1419 mg/g), and excellent recyclability (no benzene adsorption capacity loss over 7 adsorption/desorption cycles). Both H3PO4 and CO2 contributed to the development of SACs, but the latter contributed more. This research provides a new route to prepare SACs with high application potentials in benzene adsorption.

A sudden heating method was proposed for preparing super active carbon (SAC).
This method reduced activation time markedly by eliminating slow-heating step.
The largest surface area (2648 m2/g) was achieved at impregnation ratio of 1.
The highest pore volume (1.762 cm3/g) was achieved at impregnation ratio of 2.
The SAC displayed high benzene adsorption capacity and excellent recyclability.
