  • Cadmium(II) adsorption by activated carbon: batch studies and reversibility

    Adsorption of cadmium(II) by Brazilian activated carbons, in their original and nitric acid activated forms, was evaluated. The equilibrium was reached within the first 15 min of contact between carbon and metal solution, and obeys a pseudo-second order Lagergren model. The maximum adsorption capacity is higher than 64 mg/g for the oxidised sample. Negative ΔG0 values indicate the spontaneity of ...

  • Enhanced adsorption of quaternary amine using modified activated carbon

    This study examined different methodologies to modify activated carbon (AC) for the removal of quaternary amine, tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH), from water. Commercial carbon (WAC) was treated by nitric acid oxidation (NA-WAC), silica impregnation (SM-WAC0.5), and oxygen plasma (P10-WAC), and their characteristics and adsorption capacity were compared. The Langmuir model fitted the ...

  • Kinetics of enhanced adsorption by polarization for organic pollutants on activated carbon fiber

    The adsorption kinetics for model pollutants on activated carbon fiber (ACF) by polarization was investigated in this work. Kinetics data obtained for the adsorption of these model pollutants at open-circuit, 400 mV, and −400 mV polarization were applied to the Lagergren equation, and adsorption rate constants (K a) were determined. With the anodic polarization of 400 mV, the capacity of ...
