A review of a certain class of theoretical models describing the kinetics of pollutants sorption onto various sorbents is presented. These assuming the rate of surface reaction as the rate-limiting step are considered. A special attention is paid to possible theoretical grounds of the most commonly applied mathematical expressions, such as the pseudo-second and the pseudo-first order equations. Simple theoretical considerations based on some fundamental theories suggest that these two formulae… CONTINUE READING
