  • The present study investigates the potential of acetylated corn cobs as an adsorbent for oil spills cleanup. The equilibrium, isotherm and kinetics of the acetylated corn cobs were all carried out at room temperature, different reaction times as well as oil concentration. The sorption model and crude oil absorptive behavior of the ACC were studied using the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models. The experimental methods adopted for the determination and estimation of the sorption coefficients… CONTINUE READING
