Measurements on wooden monolith samples prepared by a simple one-step physical method from pinus sylvestris was reported. Nitrogen adsorption and small angle X-ray scattering measurements were used to assess the structural changes as a function of temperature of the treatment. Cubes of Scotch fir pinus sylvestris wood, of edge 10 mm were carbonized in high purity nitrogen for 60 min at temperature between 600-1000°C. It was found that the resulting kinetic response showed selectivity in the sorption rate, which also showed that sorption was controlled primarily by micropore diffusion.
