Carbon granules were prepared by granulating a mixture of coconut shell powder and coal tar solution, and then by carbonizing at different temperatures. To control micropores of the carbonized granules, the deposition time of benzene vapor under nitrogen atmosphere was varied. For each prepared sample, SEM morphology and true density were investigated. The adsorption rates on the granules were measured with respect to oxygen and nitrogen by means of the Cahn D-200 system. Diffusivity, selectivity and amount of equilibrium adsorption for the gases were obtained from the measurement of adsorption rate. Based on the analysis of the adsorption characteristics, the optimum temperature and the deposition time for preparation of the molecular sieve carbon granules were found to be $800^{\circ}C$ and 10 minutes, respectively. At these optimal conditions, the selectivity coefficient, 26.4, 0f oxygen and nitrogen was obtained.
