Conversion of Creatinine in the Presence of Activated Carbon
Activated carbon (a.c.) coated with different types of polymer has been used as a sorbent in haemoperfusion techniques for the removal of toxic products (drug overdose, metabolites, etc). The adsorption capacity of different types of a.c. for creatinine, uric acid, etc, has to be determined to select the types of a.c. best suited for specific purposes. Dedrick et al. (1967) have studied the adsorption of uric acid onto the a.c. Columbia NXC (Union Carbide Corporation). They reported that uric acid in contact with a.c. was converted at least partially into yet unknown products. We report on the conversion of creatinine in the presence of a.c. (Norit RBX1) and oxygen.
