The adsorption of enrofloxacin, a veterinary antibiotic onto natural zeolite and further decontamination of zeolite was investigated in the present study. In the first part of the study, the effects of pH, temperature, and presence of ammonium ion on the adsorption process were examined and evaluated on the basis of Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms. Adsorption of enrofloxacin on natural zeolite was found to be highly pH dependent, exhibiting increases correspondent to decreases in pH. The… CONTINUE READING
