A series of experiments were conducted to determine the chemical and physical differences between varieties of Starbon and activated carbon (AC). The adsorption process for all materials followed pseudo second order kinetics. High levels of adsorption were obtained for all materials; AC showed low levels of desorption for all bioactives over multiple washings, whereas the Starbons showed elevated desorption over the course of multiple washings.
