Published on:

The conductance of a piece of activated carbon has been measured while immersed under water at five different temperatures. The change in conductance with time has been attributed to the ionization of the functional groups on the walls of the pores as the latter were gradually filled. The average pore radius has been estimated by using the equations derived to relate the increase in the conductance to the rate of flow of water into the pores.
