Activated carbon prepared from mangrove wood (Rhizophora apiculata) shows conduction behaviour similar to that of semiconductors. The conductivity increases exponentially with the temperature. Two types of charge transfer mechanism are identified, i. e. at low and high temperature. A significant increase in the conductivity was observed especially at high temperature, when the carbon was doped with simple sugar. The conductivity was also found to increase with the sugar concentration.
