Abstract—This work looks more specifically at the effect of agriculture material source on its physico-chemical properties. Seven date stone (DS) samples were collected from north (N-DS) and south (S-DS) of Libya. Chemical activation method was used to prepare activated carbon from DS (ACDS). The pH, conductivity and ash content varied in the order of N-ACDS>S-ACDS. The moisture content of ACDS samples were in the range of 3.89 to 10.4%. The bulk densities of ACDS samples were ranged from 0.271 to 0.549 g cm-3. The pH of ACDS samples were slightly acidic to neutral in nature ranged from 4.51 to 7.15. The functional groups present on the surface of DS samples were similar but their intensities were different. The findings in this research suggest that the biomasses from different source influence their physical and chemical properties, which affect their applications differently.

Index Terms—Activated carbon, date stone, physical-chemical properties.
