Abstract
The acidic environment has been confirmed to have significant influence on the biochar products through hydrothermal carbonization. To investigate the effect of H3PO4 on the surface properties and adsorption mechanisms of the biochar, fresh banana peels were used as feedstock and transformed into hydrochars under the catalysis of H3PO4 with concentration ranges from 0% to 50%wt. The addition of H3PO4 greatly impacted the physicochemical...
