Utilization of wheat straw for bio-based chemicals production is a research focus. In this work, experiments were conducted to study the preparation conditions of activated carbon from formic acid hydrolysis residue of wheat straw applying response surface methodology. The effects of activation reaction temperature, retention time and activator quantity on the decolorizing capacity of activated carbon were dealt with in this paper. Optimal preparation conditions were abtained by response surface methodology as followed: the content of ZnCl2 solution was 14.2%, reaction temperature was 798 °C and retained time was 30 mins with a decolorizing capacity of 15.8 mL methylene blue. Results indicated that the technology was available. ? (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
