Activated Charcoal is a form of carbon that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of microscopic pores, that exist between the carbon atoms. The activation, in Activated Charcoal, results in highly porous charcoals that have high surface areas capable of absorbing colors, odors, and toxic substances.
