The removal efficiencies of silver-ACFs were associated with their surface properties such as surface area, porosity, and the electro-chemical reaction time for the silver treatments. X-ray diffraction patterns of fibers electrochemically treated with silver display diffraction peaks for metallic silver and kinds of silver chloride complexes on the fiber surface after electrochemical adsorption. The results of SEM and EDX indicate that surface reaction motive of silver-ACF prepared by electrochemical reaction are depend on time function for the chloride ion removal efficiency. Finally, Cl ion adsorbed by the silver-ACFs from the ICP analysis seems to show an excellent removal effect.
