Activated carbon - Definition


Definition


Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal or carbo activatus, is a natural vegetable medication in the form of a light, black powder. It is composed of several varieties of plant material, carbonized at high temperature and then processed to help optimize its medical function. It is thus mainly used to absorb certain toxic compounds ingested, voluntarily or not, by a patient, and thus reduces their effects. It can be used for certain so-called carbon-absorbable molecules, taken quickly after ingestion, usually within the first hour.
