Abstract

Nanoporous activated carbons were prepared by hydropyrolysis processing from various biomass precursors – apricot stones, been pods, bamboo, etc. The obtained carbon adsorbents are distinguished with moderately high surface area and prevailing microporous structure. Their properties determine their application as effective adsorbents for removal of organic (phenols, etc.) and inorganic pollutants (metal ions, etc.).
