The potential of bentonite for phenol adsorption from aqueous solutions was studied. Batch kinetics and isotherm studies were carried out to evaluate the effect of contact time, initial concentration, pH, presence of solvent, and the desorption characteristics of bentonite. The adsorption of phenol increases with increasing initial phenol concentration and decreases with increasing the solution pH value. The adsorption process was significantly influenced by the solvent type in which phenol was… CONTINUE READING
