The sorption behaviour of benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylene and naphthalene using clay and sand sediments under ambient conditions is examined in this study. Experimental results showed that, the time taken to attain adsorption equilibrium for naphthalene, and BTEX were 28, 30, 30, 32, 28 hrs and 20, 22, 22, 24, 22 hrs while the desorption equilibrium time were 10, 13, 12, 15, 12 hrs and 9, 9, 9, 11, 10 hrs in clay and sand respectively. All of the naphthalene, and BTEX were adsorbed at… CONTINUE READING
