Freundlich Isotherm

Freundlich Isotherm The Freundlich isotherm, presented by Freundlich in 1906 (Gaballah et al., 1997), was the first isotherm model proposed for sorption processes. It can......

Langmuir Isotherm for Solid-liquid Adsorption

Langmuir Isotherm for Solid-liquid Adsorption Classical isotherms of adsorption (Frumkin, Langmuir, Henry) were based on the model of nonpenetrable interface, where an adsorbate can substitute......

Effective Separation by Chromatography

Effective Separation by Chromatography An effective separation by chromatography requires a judicious choice of the adsorbing material and the solvent, and they are to be......

Chromatography

Chromatography An important and useful application of adsorption is in chromatography. Chromatography may be roughly defined as a process by which several constituents in a......

Adsorption from Solution

Adsorption from Solution When a solid is placed into a solution adsorption takes place on the surface of the solid for the same reasons which......

Gibbs’ Adsorption Equation

Gibbs’ Adsorption Equation When alcohols, phenol, glycerol, fatty acids etc. are dissolved in water, the surface tension of water is reduced, the extent of reduction......

Gas-Liquid Interface: Surface Film and Surface Pressure

Gas-Liquid Interface: Surface Film and Surface Pressure Mariners in early days used to calm sea waves by spreading oil on the ocean around their boats.......

BET (Brunauer, Emmet, and Teller) Isotherm

BET (Brunauer, Emmet, and Teller) Isotherm BET analysis provides precise specific surface area evaluation of materials by nitrogen multilayer adsorption measured as a function of......

Deviations from Langmuir Isotherm

Deviations from Langmuir Isotherm Deviations from Langmuir isotherm are quite common, particularly when the gas pressure is high. This deviation is thought to be due......

Langmuir Isotherm Measurement

Langmuir Isotherm Measurement Many systems covering a wide range of temperature obey the Langmuir isotherm. As a matter of fact, deviation from linearity was ascribed......

Gas-Solid Systems: Langmuir Isotherm

Gas-Solid Systems: Langmuir Isotherm Adsorption in gas-solid systems is relatively simple. Experiments showed that the volume of gas adsorbed on solid increases with pressure rapidly......

Difference between Physical Adsorption and Chemisorption

Difference between Physical adsorption and Chemisorption Physical adsorption is a process in which the electronic structure of the atom or molecule is barely perturbed upon......
