  author={Ganapaty Alagumuthu and V. Veeraputhiran and Ramakrishnan Venkataraman},
  journal={Archives of Applied Science Research},
The ability of cynodon dactylon based thermally activated carbon to remove fluoride from aqueous solution has been investigated. The batch adsorption studies were carried out at neutral pH as the functions of contact time, adsorbent dose, adsorbate concentration, temperature and effect of co-anions, which are commonly present in water. The rate of adsorption was rapid during initial 105 minutes and attained equilibrium. Adsorption isotherms have been modeled by Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and…
