A porosimeter (ASAP 2020 model from Micromeritics) was used to determine the BET surface area ([S.sub.BET]) - based on [N.sub.2] at 77 K (SKAAR, 1988) - the microporous area ([S.sub.M]), the Langmuir surface area ([S.sub.Langmuir]), the external surface ([S.sub.external]), the total pore ([V.sub.P]), the micropore ([V.sub.MP]) and mesopore ([V.sub.MSP]) volumes and the average pore diameter (D) of the C[O.sub.2] AC.
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).
The measured isotherms at different temperatures can be fitted well to the Langmuir function.

Avermectin adsorption data were also modeled using both Langmuir and Freundlich classical adsorption isotherms.
The model mainly contains three parts: (1) the fluid flow at the REV scale which is governed by the generalized Navier-Stokes equations, (2) the mass transfer in porous media with respect to the effective diffusivity and a source/sink term solved by the advection-diffusion equation, and (3) the gas-solid adsorption process in the porous matrix which is governed by the typical Langmuir adsorption rate equation.
Langmuir monolayers at air-water interface continue to be of interest because they serve as precursors to Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films [1], they are used to incorporate nanoparticles into LB films [2], and they can serve as templates for two-dimensional crystal growth [3].
