activated charcoal

im my chem class today we were experimenting with baking soda and it got me to thinking.. baking soda absorbs bacteria etc.. contams basically.. and its kinda weak still.. better is activated charcoal.. so if one was to stick a jar of this in a terrarium, or even in the initial jar, would it help to reduce contamination?

if you look into a beam of sunlight, maybe coming in through your window...you will see gazillion millions of trillions of particles floating in the air, a cup of charcol will do very little to change this, even in a sealed terrarium. Good thought though.

I don't know about the charcoal idea but baking soda has been used to fight off green mold. How well it works is a different story:) AFOAF has used it a few times and from her experiences it works but the mycelium has a tough time coming back from it.
