Description

Application

Activated charcoal can be used for the following:
• to study its effect on tissue cultures of Daucus carota, Happlopapus gracilis and Allum cepa var. proliferum, to check the adsorption of metabolites inhibiting morphognesis.
• It may be used as the primary gastrointestinal decontamination procedure after acute drug overdose.
• It may also be used for the adsorption of dyes namely malachite green, bromophenol blue, alizarine red-S, methylene blue, eriochrome black-T, phenol red, methyl blue, and methyl violet from aqueous media.
• Oral activated charcoal may be also used for adsorption of theophylline, hence can be effectively used in patients with theophylline poisoning.

General description

Activated charcoal is an FDA approved adsorbent and generally finds application in being used during the treatment of swallowed poison.
