Activated carbon has unique physical and chemical properties and is widely used in many fields such as industry, civil and national defense, and has an irreplaceable important role. Common activated carbon can not meet the needs of human production and life expansion, so further research on modified activated carbon technology has become a hot spot.In this paper, the research results of chemical modification(oxidation modification, reduction modification, acid and alkali modification, loading metal modification and plasma modification) and physical modification(high temperature heat treatment and microwave modification) of activated carbon were summarized, the technical characteristics of different modification methods were compared and the furture development of the modification technology was prospected.

Key words: activated carbon, chemical modification, physical modification
