Mechanisms for Tetracycline Adsorption on Graphite
The tetracycline (TC) adsorption on the graphite was investigated by method of static experiments. Related properties of the adsorbate and adsorbent were studied to support the adsorption mechanisms exploration. The results indicate the close relationship existing among the adsorption capacity variation, TC Kow and TC species (+,-,0) distribution on pH. And the hydrophobic force drives TC adsorption on the graphite.
