Abstract

Synthesis and characterization of activated carbon matrices for use in extracorporeal systems were analyzed. Activate carbons were examined with the use of a variation on the titration method proposed by Boehm. 0.5f each NOVACARB™ and oxidized novacaRB were incubated with 20cm3 0.1M HCl, NaOH, sodim carbonate and NaHCO3. The results show that oxidation allows for the generation of surfaces with a predominance of carboxyl type moieties, thereby minimizing any possible side reactions on subsequent surface modification.
