That's an advantage of the activated charcoal; it needn't be in direct contact (just in the same closed container), but as only a few grams of it has a surface area of a football pitch due to its numerous minute pores, it just acts lake a magnet for any volatiles.

Data beats opinions most times... that's my opinion, though I have no data on that.
