The adsorption equilibrium loadings of supercritical carbon dioxide on BPL activated carbon were measured by an apparatus based on an isochoric method at temperatures of 313.2, 333.2 and 353.2 K and pressures up to 13 MPa. The pressure dependence of the amount of apparent adsorbed carbon dioxide showed maximum values and the maximum decreased with increasing temperature. The pressures at which the adsorbed amount showed the maximum increased with increasing temperature. The amount of true adsorption evaluated using adsorbed phase density, which was estimated by using the Dubinin-Nikolaev equation, exhibited a general trend whereby the loadings increased with increasing pressure and decreased with increasing temperature. Correlated values of both apparent and true loadings by the Dubinin-Astakhov equation were in good agreement with the exprerimental data.
