In this study, activated carbon is made from the mango nuclei (Mangifera indica L) which is used during the preparation process of alkaline hydroxides. Alkaline hydroxides simultaneously served as an activating and carbonating agent. The hydroxyl ion increases the raw material's carbon content by removing hydrogen from it in the form of water molecules. The size of the pores generated in the prepared activated carbon is determined by the positive ion in the alkaline hydroxyl. In order to determine the qualities of the manufactured activated carbon, measurements of the adsorption of the dyes methylene blue and iodine from their aqueous solutions are made, which provide information about the values of the outer and inner surface areas, respectively. Also, the density, moisture content, and ash content are measured. Compared to the BDH Company's commercial model, certain produced models provided better adsorption qualities.
