This study shows that immersion calorimetry is a useful technique which simplifies considerably the analysis of porosity and chemical nature of activated carbons.

The characterization of activated carbons in the general theoretical framework of Dubinin’s theory with its extensions to calorimetry and adsorption from solutions allows the identification of some key parameters for the performance of these materials in electrochemical capacitors.
