Sorption Activity of “Taunit”-Series Carbon Nanomaterials

Full Text PDF


The work is dedicated to finding new modern adsorbents in order to intensify production technologies of vodka and improve the quality of finished products. In the present paper, the technology of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) synthesis is described; CNTs “Taunit”-series were obtained via chemical vapor decomposition at NanoTechCenter Ltd. (Tambov, Russia). The CNTs properties were determined by scanning electron microscopy, nitrite adsorption, laser diffraction, and thermogravimetry. The principle characteristics measured for the water-alcohol mixture were as follows: rigidity, alkalinity, oxidability, volume fraction of methyl alcohol, weight concentration of acetaldehyde, and 2-propanol and organoleptic parameters, found by using gas-chromatographic analysis. The studies performed demonstrate that the “Taunit”-series carbon nanostructured materials can be effectively used for filtering water-alcohol mixtures in the vodka production.
