The adsorption capacity of activated carbon formed by ball milling from alumina and synthetic graphite was investigated. It was observed that ball milling graphite with a harder phase led to a greater adsorption capacity for a shorter milling time. The mass loss of the sample was found to be a function of temperature. The mass losses during leaching were 9.75% and 25.2% for graphite milled for 50 h without and with alumina respectively. Compared with graphite milled alone, the sample milled with alumina has a capacity of 3.7 time greater.
