Adsorption and Desorption of Tetracycline on Activated Carbons
The adsorption and desorption of tetracycline were investigated by static experiments, and two kinds of activated carbons were employed as adsorbents. And related properties of the adsorbate and adsorbents were studied to support the adsorption mechanism exploration. The results suggested that fairly strong H-bonding exists between the functional groups of activated carbons and tetracycline.
