Abstract: Kenaf-derived activated carbons (AKC) were prepared by H3PO4 activation for automobile canisters. The microstructural properties of AKC were observed using Raman spectra and X-ray diffraction. The textural properties were studied using N2/77 K adsorption isotherms. Butane working capacity was determined according to the ASTM D5228. From the results, the specific surface area and total pore volume of the AKC was determined to be 1260–1810 m2/g and 0.68–2.77 cm3/g, respectively. As the activation time increased,…
