Zinc chloride activated coir pith carbon as low cost adsorbent for removal of 2 , 4-dichlorophenol : Equilibrium and kinetic studies

Activated carbon prepared from coir pith (ZnCPC) using ZnCl2 was investigated to find the feasibility of its application for removal of 2,4–dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) in aqueous solution through adsorption process. Batch mode kinetics and isotherm studies were carried out to evaluate the effects of contact time, initial concentration, adsorbent dose, pH, and… CONTINUE READING
