The purpose of this study was a preliminary evaluation of mineral-carbon sorbents preparation possibility by the method of
thermal decomposition of a mixture of aluminium oxide or hydroxide and acenaphthene and determination of their physicochemical
properties. The conditions of carbonization were established and the changes of physicochemical properties of obtained materials
as a function of organic substance content in the mineral-carbon mixture before the process of carbonization were tracked.
In these investigations the methods of thermal analysis, low-temperature nitrogen adsorption and benzene vapors adsorption
