The d-band center shifts up to the Fermi level as compared to the parent metals via combination with a second metal over layering the Pt surface, resulting in an increase in the absorbate binding energy and thus promoting the performance of intermetallic for the CO oxidation.
The effect of operating condition (pH, adsorbent dosages, contact time, ionic strength, and initial absorbate concentration) on removal of [Cu.sup.2+] was studied.
At achievement of some particular concentration of absorbate in absorbent substance the formed curves are almost parallel to axes of concentration of sorbate (re ach saturation state).
It was shown that absorption rate was very fast at initial stages due to the rapid attachment of the absorbate to the surface of the beads.
Sucks up ten times its volume in liquid, mats well between layers of tri-poly blend and poly-cotton absorbate, is nontoxic in granular form.
The adsorption of the absorbate on the metal surface can markedly change the corrosion resisting property of the metal, and so the study of the relations between the adsorption and corrosion inhibition is great importance[6].
