In this study, the extremely high specific surface area of activated carbon originated from sugarcane bagasse was produced by dry chemical activation. In this process, KOH was used as a chemical agent and directly mixed sugarcane bagasse carbon with KOH powder, which has been treated in a solid form. In particular, the influences of the impregnation ratio and activation temperature were investigated. The as-prepared activated carbons were characterized by Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET), which aims to determine the surface area of activated carbon and Raman Spectra analysis to examine the vibration modes of material characteristics. The maximum specific surface area of the activated carbon reached 3554 m2/g at 800 °C and an impregnation ratio of 1:4. Furthermore, the Raman spectra of activated carbon exhibited graphite structure for sample in impregnation ratio 1:2 and 1:3 due to having of G and G-1 band. This material is essential for make battery.
