Traits of activated carbon ready from flax shive by NH4NO3 and NH4Cl activation: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0
The thermogravimetric methodology was used to review one-stage pyrolysis of finely floor flax shive chemically activated by NH4NO3 (AN) and NH4Cl (NAC). Activated carbons (AC) have been obtained and the chemical activation mechanism was decided. The morphology, floor space and pore measurement distribution of the AC samples have been studied by the strategies of scanning electron microscopy, low-temperature nitrogen adsorption, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The utmost methylene blue adsorption capability of the obtained AC samples was decided. The optimum parameters of activated flax shive pyrolysis (temperature, time) required for acquiring AC with the utmost particular floor space and adsorption capability have been recognized.
