  author={Yvonne H. S. Ho and Gordon McKay},
The sorption of two dyes, namely, Basic BIue 69 and Acid Bhre 25 onto peat has been studied in terms of pseudo-second order and first order mechanisms for chemical sorption as vrell as an intraparticle diffusion mechani!jm process. The batch sorption process, based on the assumption of a pseudo-second order mechanism, has been developed to predict the rite constant of sorption. the equ~lib~um capacity and initial sorption rate with the effect of agitation, initial dye concentration and… CONTINUE READING
