PREPARATION OF ACTIVATED CARBON FROM (PISTACIA KHINJUK PEELS) AND STUDY ITS CHEMICAL PROPERTIES
When preparing activated carbon, the necessary and appropriate raw materials that are available locally must be selected. we have been using Pistacia Khinjuk peels of a hard nature, which contain a large proportion of lignin and oxygen components, The hydrogen was removed from its composition using varying proportions of potassium hydroxide and under the same conditions. The study proved that increasing the base leads to the production of good types of neutral nature, The properties of activated carbon were determined by measuring the external and internal surface area, where some models showed an advantage over commercial models in terms of adsorption, low density, low ash content and Humidity.
