Kinetics Studies of Methylene Blue Adsorption onto Spherical Chitosan Resin
Investigated the sorption kinetics of methylene blue on spherical chitosan resin. Studied the influences of ionic strength, pH， initial concentration on the adsorption process. The adsorption of methylene blue increases with the decreasing ionic strength and the increasing pH and the initial concentration of the system. Furthermore, the adsorption process correspondes with Lagergren pseudo-second kinetic equation and the finess (R2) of the model was above 0.99.
