The adsorption of Reactive red dye (RR) onto Coconut tree flower carbon (CFC) and Jute fibre carbon (JFC) from aqueous solution was investigated. Adsorption studies were carried out at different initial dye concentrations, initial solution pH and adsorbent doses. The kinetic studies were also conducted; the adsorption of Reactive red onto CFC and JFC(More)
A comparison of linear and non-linear regression method in selecting the optimum isotherm was made to the experimental equilibrium data of methylene blue sorption by activated carbon. The r2 was used to select the best fit linear theoretical isotherm. In the case of non-linear regression method, six error functions, namely coefficient of determination (r2),(More)
Equilibrium uptake of methylne blue onto lemon peel was fitted to the 2 two-parameter isotherm models namely Freundlich and Langmuir and 3 six-parameter isotherm models namely Redlich-Peterson, Toth, Radke-Prausnitz, Fritz-Schluender, Vieth-Sladek and Sips isotherms by non-linear method. A comparison between two-parameter and three-parameter isotherms was(More)
A comparison of linear and non-linear regression method in selecting the optimum isotherm was made to the experimental equilibrium data of basic red 9 sorption by activated carbon. The r(2) was used to select the best fit linear theoretical isotherm. In the case of non-linear regression method, six error functions namely coefficient of determination (r(2)),(More)
Batch experiments were carried out for the sorption of eosin yellow, malachite green and crystal violet onto jute fiber carbon (JFC). The operating variables studied are the initial dye concentration, initial solution pH, adsorbent dosage and contact time. Experimental equilibrium data were fitted to Freundlich, Langmuir and Redlich-Peterson isotherm by(More)
Jute fiber obtained from the stem of a plant was used to prepare activated carbon using phosphoric acid. Feasibility of employing this jute fiber activated carbon (JFC) for the removal of Methylene blue (MB) from aqueous solution was investigated. The adsorption of MB on JFC has found to dependent on contact time, MB concentration and pH. Experimental(More)
Nanostructured TiO2 ultrafine powder (Ti-SG) 100% anatase phase prepared by the sol-gel method was used as a photocatalyst in the decomposition reaction of a basic dye, Crystal Violet (hexamethyl-p-rosaniline chloride), in water under UV light irradiation. Optimization of the photocatalyst's performance as a function of irradiation time, catalyst(More)
Batch experiments were carried out for the sorption of methylene blue onto Paspalum notatum. The operating variables studied were initial dye concentration, initial solution pH, adsorbent dosage and contact time. Experimental equilibrium data were fitted to Freundlich, Langmuir and Redlich-Peterson isotherms by non-linear regression method. Six error(More)
This paper explores the advantages and implementation of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) TMS 320F2812 to generate gate pulses. The main features of this DSP are elaborated. The technique to obtain gate pulses in different pulse width modulation methods in order to control three-phase voltage source inverter is explained systematically. The steps needed to(More)
