The preparation of polymer derived activated carbon coated monolith is reported. The response surface methodology based on Box-Behnken design is used to find the optimal condition for synthesis of mesoporous carbon. The dominant parameters identified are the carbonization temperature, concentration, and molecular weight of pore former agent. Typical values for BET surface area are 341 m(2)/g carbon and 20 m(2)/g (supportedcarbon) with pores size distribution in the range of 4-400 nm. The highest pore volume obtained is 182.77 mm(3)/g (supportedcarbon).
