ABSTRACT
The model of adsorbate pore filling correction was applied to describe ethanol vapour diffusionfrom a stream of air in particles of activated carbon. The calculated values of pore diffusivity 'AB D wereranging from 1.06×10-6 to 2.60×10-6 m2 s-1. Transport of ethanol vapours in pores of activated carbonSupersorbon HS-4 proceeded via combination of Knudsen and surface diffusion. The values of effectivediffusivity De calculated from the pore diffusivity 'AB D varied from 3.13×10-11 to 2.461×10-10 m2 s-1 and adependence of De on adsorbate concentration was found.
