In this study, activated carbon fibers (BACF) were prepared from moso bamboo by phenol liquefaction, spinning, curing, and CO2 activation. The microstructure and porous texture of BACF were investigated by Fourier transform IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and N-2 adsorption at 196 C. The surface area and pore volume increased progressively after activation, and yields were found in the range of 39-59.6%. BACF showed type I isotherms with multimodal pore size distributions in the
