Here, we measured P and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) sorption isotherms on 23 soils from tropical Oxisol, Ultisol, Inceptisol, Andisol, and Aridisol soils using P concentrations from 10 to 500 mg P L and DOC concentrations from 10 to 100 mg DOC [L.sup.-1] Isotherms were fit to the Langmuir equation and parameters were related to soil characteristics.
For fruit powder, the hygroscopic equilibrium isotherms are important (Anselmo et al., 2006).
The adsorption isotherms provide useful information on sorption mechanism, surface properties and affinity of the adsorbent [34].
The mobility and retention of sorbate is shown through sorption isotherms; commonly used are Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms in sorption studies (Limousin et al., 2007).
The adsorption isotherms of Zn and Cu of both soils were well fitted to linear Freundlich and Langmuir equations (with minimum R2 = 0.96 and maximum R2 = 0.99, respectively).
Mathematical models allow to determine the relationship between water content and relative humidity, which are expressed by hygroscopic equilibrium curves and/or isotherms. Sorption isotherms are essential to define limits of dehydration, estimate changes in the moisture of the product when stored at certain temperature and relative humidity in the environment (Chaves et al., 2015).
This equilibrium correlation is developed by using equilibrium isotherms. These isotherms express way of sorbent interaction with the surface of adsorbent, that is, whether it is monolayer or multilayer sorption [9].
The GAB (Guggenheim-Anderson-de Boer) and BET (Brunauer-Emmett-Teller) are the most common models used for the determination of the sorption isotherms for different materials.
Sorption isotherms are a key metric for assessing water sorption during storage and are affected by coffee particle size and roasting (Oliveira et al., 2014).
Adsorption isotherms relates the adsorbate--adsorbent interaction at equilibrium.
The apparatus is intended to make it possible to prepare the mixtures of gases and vapors of a certain composition, to analyze them by means of gas chromatography and to measure the adsorption isotherms of mixtures as well as of the individual components of the mixture volumetrically.
