Abstract The adsorption of benzene and ethanol at 0, 15 and 30°C on to a number of adsorbents were studied to investigate their performance in the removal of VOCs. The isotherms were measured over a wide range of relative pressure in order to study the contribution of the micropore adsorption and the capillary condensation in mesopores. A model describing the adsorption of subcritical vapours was tested against the isotherm data. It was found that results obtained from the isotherm fitting of benzene and ethanol experimental data were consistent with each other and also with the results of nitrogen adsorption at 77 K. Among the adsorbents studied, Ajax active carbon was found to be the most practical adsorbent for the removal of VOCs.
