This stage is important because during impregnation the activating agent will penetrated into raw materials particles and occupied substantial volume.
Lastly, the low ash proportions formed for the A[C.sub.s] at both 500 [degrees]C and 600 [degrees]C evidence an efficient activation process as well as the removal of the activating agent.
Physical activation involves carbonization of carbonaceous materials at high temperatures (500-900[degrees]C) in an inert atmosphere followed by activation in the presence of activating agents such as C[O.sub.2] or steam resulting in activated carbon.
Gonzalez, The use of steam and CO2 as activating agents in the preparation of activated carbons Carbon, 33, 15 (1995).
gmelinii sawdust waste through alkaline activation by physical mixing and to examine the effects of preparation conditions (type of activating agent, activating agent/sawdust ratio, and precarbonization and activation temperature) on pore structure of the AC.
In Figures 3a and 3b, the behavior of the activation is analyzed, C[O.sub.2] and [H.sub.2]O being the activating agents. Figure 3a shows the percentage of microporosity of the samples which reaches over 85% for C[O.sub.2] activation and over 70% for [H.sub.2]O activation.
Simply swab the biopsy channel of the scope with the included cotton-tipped long probe; clip off the cotton swab into green-capped vial; then mix in the activating agent, shake vigorously, wait 20 seconds and check for a color change to blue/green.
Devanand has used low-dose atypical antipsychotics adjunctively, particularly the activating agent aripiprazole.
100 g of polypropylene powder (Himont U.S.A., product no.: 6201, MFI = 20), 10 g of surface activating agent [xylene (Aldrich, reagent grade) or toluene (Aldrich, reagent grade)], and 3, 5, 10, 15 or 30 g of maleic anhydride (Aldrich, 99%) were mixed together in the reaction flask to prepare samples of various graft levels for thermal analyses.
The story's activating agent, the man who intrudes on the villagers' loss, is Mitchell Stevens (Ian Holm), a big-city lawyer who wants to bring a class action suit on their behalf.
Next to this, there are the connected variables of the AC production process as activation temperature, residence time and proportion of the used activating agent proportion must be considered, because they have influence over the final processing costs and becoming a competitive differential.
