Activated Carbon Website Uses
AME SEM Images
by Anderson Materials Evaluation, Inc.
A new website for activated carbon has used the
activated carbon SEM images from our website
used as an illustrative example of our SEM
analyses. These images were made by Dr. Lorrie
Krebs. The Australian website using these images
has done so with our permission. That website
is here and uses the images to show the high
surface area of activated charcoal. The example
from our website is given below:
Illustrative Example 2: Activated Carbon
Figure 1 is a low magnification (50X) SEM
micrograph of activated carbon particles of an air
filter. Activated carbon is similar to graphitic
carbon except that it has a high degree of porosity
and a large internal surface area. Activated carbon
is mostly used as a filter material for removing
impurities from water and various gases. Figure 2
is a moderately magnified (1000X) SEM
micrograph (of the particle to the right in Figure 1)
indicating internal surfaces and porosity in the
activated carbon. This sample was sufficiently
conductive that it was not coated.
