Thermal parametric pumping is a cyclic adsorptive process based on periodic changes in the bed temperature simultaneously with flow reversal. This is an innovative technology which may allow removing phenolic compounds from waste solutions to be recovered and recycled. The recovery and/or purification of liquid streams containing phenol and 4-nitrophenol by adsorptive parametric pumping was studied in this work. An automated parametric pumping pilot unit was operated in semi-continuous… 
Treatment of chromium bearing wastewater using thermal parametric pumping
Parametric pumping (PP) is an adsorptive separation technique based on periodic, synchronous coupled transport action. Net consequence of the coupling of alternating absorbent fluid position
Olive mill wastewater valorisation through phenolic compounds adsorption in a continuous flow column
Abstract A continuous-flow adsorption/desorption process for the recovery of phenolic compounds (PCs) from olive mill wastewaters (OMWs) was developed in a 0.53 m packed column, using a previously
Experimental and mathematical modelling of Cr(III) sorption in fixed-bed column using modified pine bark
Abstract This work aims to analyse the dynamic behavior of a fixed-bed column to remove Cr(III) from a synthetic effluent. The adsorbent was prepared by mercerizing pine bark (MPB). The dynamic study
Catalytic Wet Peroxide Oxidation of Phenol in a New Two-Impinging-Jets Reactor
The catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) of phenol with activated carbon (AC) as the catalyst has been successfully tested in a novel type of two-impinging-jets reactor (TIJR). The TIJR is
Separation of synthetic vanillin at different pH onto polymeric adsorbent Sephabeads SP206
Abstract Adsorption of synthetic vanillin onto non-ionic polymeric resins Sephabeads SP206 by using static and dynamic approach has been investigated. The influence of temperature, flow rate, feed
Batch and Continuous Flow Adsorption of Phenolic Compounds from Olive Mill Wastewater: A Comparison between Nonionic and Ion Exchange Resins
The goals of this work were (i) to compare two anion ion exchange resins (IRA958 Cl and IRA67) and a nonionic resin (XAD16) in terms of phenolic compounds adsorption capacity from olive mill
Separation of sugars and phenolics from the heavy fraction of bio-oil using polymeric resin adsorbents
Abstract This work describes the equilibrium and kinetic adsorption of levoglucosan and a mixture of phenolic species from an aqueous solution on two polymeric resin adsorbents, SP207 and XAD4. The
Synthesis, characterization of salicylic-HCHO polymeric resin and its evaluation as a boron adsorbent
In this study, a novel salicylic-HCHO typed functional polymeric spherical resin (DFP) was prepared by inverse suspension polymerization. Starting with 2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, phenol and
Structural and thermodynamic factors on the adsorption process of phenolic compounds onto polyvinylpolypyrrolidone
In this study we find the possible structural factors that can determine the adsorption process of some pure phenolic compounds (PC) onto polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP), analyzing their adsorption
Synthesis, characterization and adsorption performance of a novel post-crosslinked adsorbent.
A post-crosslinked polymeric adsorbent PDHT-2 with high specific surface area was prepared by Friedel-Crafts reaction of the pendant vinyl groups without an externally added crosslinking agent and was proved to be exothermic and spontaneous in nature.
