Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the possibility of producing hydrophobic mesoporous mineral-carbon sorbents from aluminum hydroxide and coal-tar pitch-polymer compositions by carbonization at 600 °C in an nitrogen atmosphere. The method of homogenization was optimized using different solvents. Blends of aluminum hydroxide and coal-tar pitch with a definite composition or the products of co-precipitation of aluminum hydroxide in the coal-tar pitch-polymer medium were subjected to carbonization process. The hydrophilic–hydrophobic properties were evaluated by adsorption of water vapors. The highest value of BET surface area about 370 m2/g, was achieved for the carbonization product obtained from co-precipitated raw components with 10 wt% coal-tar pitch-polymer compositions.
