Activated Carbon Compendium provides a critical in-depth analysis of recent research into activated carbons, focussing on their wide-ranging applications, and the complexity and flexibility in their manufacture and use. Professor Harry Marsh has selected and reviewed 27 key papers originally published in Carbon over the last five years. The compendium represents an indispensable review of key work in the area.

Areas include: The Activation Process, Modifications to Porosity, Properties of Activated carbons, Applications, Theoretical.


For carbon and materials scientists, students and researchers involved in the field of activated carbons, who want a summary of the key advances in the field over the last five years.
