Carbon Adsorption Equilibria Predictions for Volatile Organic Compounds in the Presence of Humic Acid Using Ideal Adsorbed Solution Theory

Irreversible Adsorption Hysteresis in Columns

Penetrative Convection in Mixed Layer Models
While surface heat transfer is important in lakes and reservoirs, solar radiation, which penetrates the water surface and is absorbed in the water column, also exists. In this work, a...

Removal of Radon and Uranium from a water supply
The removal of Radon and Radium from drinking water with the help of granulated activated carbon (GAC) adsorption was investigated. A packed bed column was used for the purpose. It has...

Effects of Organic Compounds on the Adsorption and Desorption of Metals in Soils
This study evaluated the adsorption and release rates of toxic metals in a soil system also impacted with organic compounds. The soil type studied is common to hazardous waste sites throughout...

Removal of EDB from Groundwater by Granular Activated Carbon Filtration
Application of ethylene dibromide (EDB) pesticide to crops may result in contamination of groundwater. Various water treatment alternatives are: granulated activated carbon adsorption,...

The Adsorption Characteristics of NI (II) Onto Bubble Surface
The removal of Ni(II) by foam fractionation is brought about by the electrostatic mechanism. From removal and zeta potential measurements, it clearly demonstrates that Ni**2** plus and...

Predicting Carbon Adsorption of Organics from Humid Air
Increased levels of humidity resulted in reduced adsorption capacity for trichloroethylene (TCE) at low influent concentrations on a microporous activated carbon. Water vapor also reduced...

Adsorption and Release of Heavy Metals in Contaminated Soil
This study investigated the adsorption and release rates of toxic metals in soil type associated with hazardous waste sites common to the Northeastern United States. Five heavy metals...

Physical and Chemical Behavior of Chrysotile Asbestos Particles in Natural Waters
The paper reports on research to develop a better understanding of the chemical behavior and the influence of surface chemistry on the physical behavior of chrysotile asbestos and other...

Performance Prediction for Removal of Odorous Organics From Drinking Water by Adsorption
The authors address three questions: What do packed bed filters remove from suspension in water treatment plants? How do they accomplish this removal? How can this knowledge be used in...
