The isotherms, isosters and heats of adsorption of argon, krypton and xenon were measured on the active carbon Supersorbon HS and the carbon adsorbent Jado LD 1191 - in a temperature range 298-473 K, using gas chromatography. Differences were observed in the adsorption behaviour of both types of adsorbents - which showed especially on the nonlinearity of adsorption isosters of all gases studied with the Jado LD 1191 adsorbent. It was found that both types of adsorbents possess good adsorption properties, which can be - for Supersorb HS - utilized in the beds of the delaying lines of radioactive noble gases. The practical application of the Jado LD 1191 adsorbent for the same purposes is limited by the presence of inactive teflon support in the structure of this adsorbent.
