Discoloration of sugar, air purification, removal of odor or toxic gases, water purification, gas separation, solvent recovery, etc. have been the traditional application areas of porous carbons. Most of these applications are based on the superior adsorption properties. Of course, the pore sizes of the activated carbons are different among the various applications by controlled production of activated carbons. Because the readers may find a suitable book for activated carbons that describes these historical usages of the activated carbons , we will review contemporary applications of porous carbons.
