Abstract

The main purpose of this work is to produce activated carbon from local agricultural waste by-product such as Cocos Nucifera L. (coconut) husks and Musa Paradisiaca (banana) peel. It will be synthesized through two (2) different methods which are carbonization and activation process. Coconut husks and banana peel will be carbonized in a furnace at temperature of 300oC. Then the charcoal produce will be activated with two (2) chemicals such as phosphoric acid and sodium hydroxide to investigate the elements and functional groups. More acidic condition is assume to produce larger porosity and surface area of activated carbon. Then the activated carbon produce will be analysed using several machines such as Fourier Transformation Infra-Red (Attenuated Total Reflectance) FTIR (ATR) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD).
