We have used the barothermal treatment method (heat and pressure) to modify the surface of activated charcoal with maleic anhydride. As a result of the modification, about 1 mmol/g of thermally stable carboxyl groups are formed on the surface with a decomposition temperature range of 330-470°C. We show that the proposed procedure makes it possible to obtain materials with a uniform coverage of functional groups.
