The subject contract has been undertaken to investigate the preparation of and the performance of whetlerized superactivated carbon for use in devices for protecting against chemical agents. A superactivated carbon is one having a carbon tetrachloride activity of typically 120 percent as compared to a more conventional activity of typically 60 percent. A literature study on superactivated charcoal adsorbents has been made and pertinent information is presented. A tentative plan of action is proposed to demonstrate whether a steam activated carbon can be produced with properties similar to those of the previously prepared superactivated charcoal. Author
