  • Modelling of batch adsorption of metal ions onto sago waste

    Adsorption kinetics of lead, copper and zinc ions onto sago waste were investigated in batch system. A two-resistance mass transfer model, namely the Film-Solid Diffusion Model (FSDM) which consisted of an external resistance and intra-particle resistance was applied to describe the experimental data successfully. The external mass transfer coefficient (kƒ) values were 1.85 ×10−2 ± 4.74% cm/s ...
