Activated carbons possess many of the properties desirable for use as a sorbent material in extracorporeal systems. They are physically and chemically stable, may be modified in terms of porosity or surface chemistry, thus allowing a wide range of sorbent materials to be produced. One drawback of activated carbons is their inherent hydrophobicity. Unless they are used as hydrophobic matrices, the surfaces have to be modified to produce a more hydrophilic surface, to increase interaction with the biological solution of interest.
