Making activated from being absorbed into the body by charcoal involves heating carbon-rich trapping them on its porous, textured surface. materials to very high temperatures. This 'activation' process strips the charcoal of While noting it as a suitable treatment for previously absorbed molecules, reduces the diarrhoea, the researchers also pointed out size of the pores in the charcoal and makes that activated charcoal had few side effects, more holes in each molecule, therefore, especially in comparison with common anti increasing its overall surface area. diarrhoeal medications.
