Kyron Activated charcoal is a high quality pure material made in Germany. Scroll down for more info.

Among the many pure materials that we sell, charcoal, more scientifically known as activated carbon, is always in demand as an antidote. Kyron Activated charcoal is a high quality pure material made in Germany.

Activated carbon is highly adsorptive for many toxicants, including mercuric chloride, alkaloids including strychnine, barbiturates, etc. Although it does not detoxify them, activated charcoal will effectively prevent absorption of toxicants if properly used. It can be effectively combined with emetic and gastric lavage techniques.


How to make it?

Make a slurry of the activated carbon with water, roughly 1 gram of powder to 5 – 10ml water. Dose at 2 to 8 grams per kilogram body weight. Administer by stomach tube using either a funnel or large syringe. Newer methods suggest the administration of activated carbon 3-4 times a day for 2 – 3 days after occurrence of poisoning.
