Competitive and hindering effects of natural organic matter on the adsorption of MTBE onto activated carbons and zeolites.


Equilibrium and kinetic adsorption of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) onto three coal-based activated carbons, one coconut-based activated carbon, and two zeolites are elucidated in this study. Natural organic matter (NOM) and MTBE competed for the adsorption of activated carbons to different extents. The ideal adsorbed solution theory (IAST) combined with… (More)
