Adsorption of antibiotics on solid particles is a key process controlling their fate in the subsurface. This study compared the adsorption of ofloxacin and norfloxacin (NOR) on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to evaluate the role of structural and hydrophobic properties in regulating their adsorption. A significant relationship was observed between single-point adsorption coefficients (K(d)) and specific surface area (highly hydrophobic), but not between K(d)s and oxygen content. This result suggested… CONTINUE READING
