Removal of heavy metal ions from aqueous solutions using zeolites is widely described by pseudo-second order kinetics although this model may not be valid under all conditions. In this work, we have extended approaches used for derivation of this model in order to develop a novel kinetic model that is related to the ion exchange mechanism underlying… CONTINUE READING
