After activation, the carbon is impregnated with acidic surface groups, which are very stable and are strongly bound to the surface of the carbon. These groups provide carbon with a great capacity to retain alkaline molecules, such as ammonia and low molecular weight amines.
Vapamón must be handled with the care corresponding to an acidic material and must be kept in an environment as dry as possible, as it is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture). However, this care is offset by the capacity of this carbon, which is approximately twice that of other impregnated carbons that are manufactured to retain alkaline gases and vapors.
- Ammonia (NH3) and amines.
- All types of organic vapors (although with less capacity than a non-impregnated carbon)
Compound with which it is suggested to test:
Ammonia (NOTE: organoleptic tests should not be done, as ammonia can cause respiratory arrest)
Among the compounds it retains are:
