Is Activated Carbon used for absorption or adsorption?

By Delta Adsorbents on 11/16/2017

Activated Carbon bulkActivated Carbon is coal that has been processed through both heat and chemicals.   First the coal is heated under extreme heat and burned. The carbon is then treated with chemicals and heated again with oxygen and steam.  These processes create the expansive number of pores found in activated carbon.  These pores allow for greater surface area for molecules to adhere which is a process known as adsorption.

Activated Alumina adsorption mediaWhat do little spheres of aluminum trihydrate have in common with rubies and sapphires? They are all aluminas. Sapphires and rubies are nearly pure crystalline alumina with trace impurities that add color. Activated alumina, such as BASF F200, is a very dry and porous type of aluminum oxide. It is incredibly strong with a high resistance to abrasion and can hold a great deal of liquid without changing form.
