The maximum adsorptions of lead and cadmium were 9.
The optimum conditions of lead and cadmium adsorption by the modified oil shale ash were as follows: pH 7.
2] The adsorptions of various solutes on a solid remain an active area of research.
Among others, selective adsorptions that make use of biological materials and active carbon have created great interest among the researchers.
First order rate equation given by Lagergren describes the rate as well as describes the kinetic process of liquid-solid phase adsorptions based on the adsorbent capacities [25].
Initially the adsorptions occurred rapidly but declined slowly after attaining equilibrium.
lb, the adsorptions at 40, 50, and 60[degrees]C all reached their equilibrium at time of 25 min.
The negative process of adsorption is desorption and both desorption and adsorptions are generally termed as sorption.
The adsorption isotherm for Cr(VI) and Pb(II) with modified clay are shown in Figures 3 and 4, and all adsorptions belong to the Langmuir isotherm model.
These results suggest that, the adsorption of the considered dyes on CAC obeys the second order kinetic model for the entire period of adsorptions based on the assumption that, the rate limiting step may involve chemisorptions.
Adsorption process provides an attractive alternative treatment to other removal techniques because it is more economical and readily available [10-12].
