ABSTRACT

 

In present investigation, Bituminous coal in removing phenol has been studied. The effects of various factors such as particle size, pH, phenol concentration and temperature on sorption are investigated. The removal of phenol increased with decreasing adsorbent particle size, pH and increasing concentration and temperature. The study is followed the pseudo-first-order rate kinetics and is found that the sorption data fit well the Lagergren equation.

 

Keywords : Sorption, Bituminous coal, Phenol, Kinetic parameter, Langergren equation.
