Modeling of sorption kinetics: the pseudo-second order equation and the sorbate intraparticle diffusivity
The applicability of the pseudo-second order equation (PSOE) has been explained on the ground of the model assuming that the overall sorption rate is limited by the rate of sorbate diffusion in the
The paper presents the results from the investigations on the removal of nickel ions from aqueous phase by adsorption onto fly ash. The kinetics of the adsorption was studied at room temperature and
Equilibrium sorption isotherms and kinetics for the sorption of lead onto low cost activated sorbents
Studies on the removal of lead (II) ions by adsorption onto acid activated coconut fibres and walnut shells have been carried out. Effect of various parameters like pH, contact time, adsorbent
Adsorption Thermodynamic and Kinetic Study of Manganese Removal from Ground Water onto Zeolite
Abstract: The zeolite was used to treat the groundwater. The various solutions with initial manganese (Mn2+) concentration ranging from 0.5 to 1.5mg/L were prepared in this study. The nature zeolite
Comparative studies on the removal of textile effluents by various eco-friendly adsorbent strategies
This article aimed to study the low cost, available and renewable biological adsorbent for the removal of reactive textile dye from aqueous solutions. Batch experiments were carried out for sorption


Kinetic Model for Lead(II) Sorption on to Peat
The kinetics of lead sorption on to peat have been investigated. The batch sorption model, based on the assumption of a pseudo-second order mechanism, has been developed to predict the rate constant
Removal of Cadmium (II) by Low Cost Adsorbents
The efficiency of Giridih coal and crushed coconut shell in removing cadmium from solution was investigated in batch experiments after eliminating other sorbents in the initial screening tests. Both
Removal of hexavalent chromium from aqueous solutions by granular activated carbon
Batch adsorption trials were used to assess the effectiveness of using activated carbon as a sorbent for the removal of hexavalent chromium from solution. The results show that, although the pH for
Process Development for Removal and Recovery of Cadmium from Wastewater by a Low-Cost Adsorbent: Adsorption Rates and Equilibrium Studies
Activated carbon prepared from peanut hulls (PHC), an agricultural waste by-product, has been used for the adsorption of Cd(II) from synthetic wastewater. The adsorption data fit better with the
Kinetic Studies of Competitive Heavy Metal Adsorption by Sphagnum Moss Peat
Much of the work on the adsorption of metals by low-cost, natural biosorbents has focussed on the uptake of single metals. In practice, wastewaters are polluted with multiple metals. In addition, the
Use of wollastonite in the removal of Ni(II) from aqueous solutions
The ability of wollastonite to adsorb Ni (II) from water has been carried out. A removal of 92% of Ni (II) with 20 g L−1 of adsorbent was observed at 50 mg L−1 adsorbate concentration, 6.5 pH and 30
As(III) removal from aqueous solution by adsorption
The removal of As(III) from aqueous solutions at different concentrations, pH and temperatures by haematite has been carried out successfully. The maximum removal was found to be 96 % at
Removal of paraquat by adsorption on ‘waste’ Fe(III)/Cr(III) hydroxide: Adsorption rates and equilibrium studies
The ability of ‘waste’ Fe(III)/Cr(III) hydroxide to adsorb paraquat has been investigated. Effects of contact time, initial concentration and pH, adsorption capacity and desorption have been studied.
