AbstractThe potential of activated cotton (AC) as a low cost eco-absorbent for the recovery of organic solvent vapor was studied in this study. Its pore structure and chemical structure were characterized. Its adsorption speed, saturated adsorption volume and desorption process of solvent vapor were also evaluated. Its organic vapor adsorption process is fast enough to reach equilibrium within 10 min. It adsorbs more solvent vapor than other activated carbons due to its high microporosity. Finally, less than 200 degrees C is required for the complete desorption of adsorbed species. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
