This research focused on coal fly ash fabricated as CO adsorbent. Coal fly ash having grain size of 325 mesh was characterized by XRF, XRD and SEM-EDX. Physical activation was done at temperatures of 5000C, 5200C, 5400C, 5600C, 5800C and 6000C. Chemical activation was undertaken by mixing between fly ash and NaOH with mass ratio of 1: 1.2 with subsequent heating at 7500C for 1 h and followed by washing the specimens until pH=7. The samples were dried at 1000C for 1 h. The major constituents of unactivated coal fly ash are Fe, Ca, K, Si and Al in the form of quatz and anorthite. The chemical activation led to reduce the amount of quartz or increase the amount of anorthite. Physical activation does not affect the amount of minerals. Surface area of coal fly ash with physical activation at temperature 5400C and chemical activation is 32.444 m²/g (BET).
