The effects of rhamnolipids and Triton X-100 on phenol adsorption by Penicillium simplicissimum were studied. The optimum pH was 7 for phenol adsorption by all the test biomasses. The adsorption of phenol at pH 7 by biomass pre-treated with 0.05% Triton X-100, 0.2% Triton X-100, 0.05% rhamnolipids and 0.005% rhamnolipids was 3.4, 2.7, 2.4, and 1.8-fold, respectively, that of untreated biomass. The pseudo-second-order model and the Freundlich isotherms described the adsorption processes better… CONTINUE READING
