Thermochemical cycles produce hydrogen and oxygen from water through a series of chemical reactions. In this work activated carbons were explored for their activity to produce hydrogen via the decomposition of HI; an important reaction in the sulfur-iodine cycle. Activated carbon properties were examined by nitrogen physisorption and Boehm’s titrations.
