Removal of BTEX from Aqueous Solution Using

The effectiveness of hexadecyltrimethylammonium (HDTMA) cation exchanged with kaolinite clay (corresponding to 50% of the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the clay) in the removal of BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) present in the water soluble fraction (WSF) of crude oil was studied using batch kinetic and isotherm studies.
