The surface reaction of chlorine and activated carbon at low pressures Boyd, Alan William


The nature of the surface reaction of chlorine with activated carbon was investigated in the following way. A measured amount of chlorine was admitted to outgassed charcoal and pressure and temperature readings taken over the pressure range 10⁻⁵ - 10⁻² mm. Chlorine was removed in increments until a series of isosteres were obtained in the temperature range -183° to 1180°C. From these functions desorption isobars and heats of adsorption were calculated. Conclusions were drawn from the values of these as to the nature of the surface reaction of the chlorine and activated carbon.
