Abstract
The technique of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) has been applied to the characterization and the analysis of several activated carbons. These activated carbons included BPL carbon (a base carbon), ASC carbon (a BPL carbon impregnated with copper, chromium and silver) and ASC/T carbon (an ASC carbon impregnated with triethylenediamine, TEDA). DSC has been shown to be capable of measuring enthalpic changes associated with transitions and/or reactions of the surface species on the activated carbon. Physical changes or chemical reactions occurring on the carbon surface and the surface impregnants are observed as endotherms or exotherms (enthalpic changes) on the DSC curves (thermograms).
