Paper Title:
Adsorption Behavior and Thermodynamic Characteristics of p,p’- DDT on Expanded Graphite
  Abstract

The adsorption of p,p’-DDT onto expanded graphite (EG) in aqueous solutions was investigated under varying conditions of p,p’-DDT concentrations, adsorbent doses, pH, and contact time. The removal efficiency of p,p’-DDT from the aqueous solutions remained constant in a range of pH 2 to 10, and the thermodynamic data followed the type II adsorption isotherm characterized by a spontaneous process. At lower concentrations, adsorption equilibrium of p,p’-DDT onto EG was fitted to Freundlich isotherm. Dynamic modeling of the adsorption showed that the first order reversible kinetic model was held for the adsorption process within the range of experimental concentration. It was suggested that expanded graphite can be used for efficient removal of p,p’-DDT from water and wastewater.
