View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
The adsorption of vapor phase elemental mercury onto the commercially produced Thief carbon and impregnated Thief carbon with ferric chloride and sodium chloride is disclosed. The results indicate that the impregnation of these sorbents enhanced considerably their capacity and changed the sorption mechanism. Ferric chloride impregnated Thief carbon sorbents presented the highest sorption capacity.
