Experimental results are presented for equilibrium loadings of phenol absorbed onto virgin activated carbon from aqueous solutions and from supercritical carbon dioxide at elevated pressures. Additional results are reported for the cyclic adsorption/regeneration of activated carbon over several cycles. A thermodynamic model is developed for correlating the phase equilibrium data and for evaluating supercritical carbon dioxide as a solvent to regenerate activated carbon saturated with phenol.
