THE use of evaporated carbon films for adsorption studies is desirable in view of the difficulty of outgassing carbon powder. By analogy with the comparative properties of metal surfaces produced by evaporation and by reduction of powders, it seems likely that evaporated carbon should be significantly cleaner and more reproducible.
