Graphycal Abstract: The purpose of this work was to compare the structural and sorption characteristics of local vegetal activated carbon obtained from apricot stones (AC-C, Republic of Moldova) with that of commercial activated carbons (Granucol® BI/GE/FA, Germany). According to the obtained results, the local vegetal activated carbon (AC-C) has proven to be comparatively effective with commercial ones (Granucol® type) in removing methylene blue dye from solutions.
