Activated carbons were prepared from a lignocellulosic material (prune pits) by pyrolysis to 900 degree C, and then activation in CO//2 at 900 degree C for activation times ranging from 15-60 min. These were compared with each other and to Filtrasorb 400 and Aquanuchar A with regard to specific surface area, pore volume distribution, and the rate and extent of adsorption of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from filtered wastewater secondary effluent.
