COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF COAL AND COCONUT ACTIVATED CARBON

ABSTRCT
The experiment was carried out to analyze comparatively coal and coconut activated carbon.  The coal sample used in bituminous and with density of 1300kg 1m3 tile coconut shell was used.
The coal and coconut shell was first activated using phosphoric acid.  The activated coal and coconut carbons mere then used to bleach palm oil after preliminary treatment of the palm oil.
The 10 dine value, saponification value, peroxide value and acid value of the oil bleached with coal activated carbon and coconut shell activated carbon were determined separately and compared.  From the experiment carried out it was discovered that coconut shell activated carbon is a better absorbent than coal activated carbon. 
The results obtained from the experiments during experiment can be used to dram further inference on the comparative analysis of coal and coconut activated carbon.
