Kinetics of Phenol Adsorption onto Activated Carbon Fiber
The adsorption of phenol onto activated carbon fiber (ACF) from aqueous solutions were studied.The adsorption kinetics of phenol by ACF can be described by the Lagergren first-order and pseudo second-order kinetic models, respectively.The Lagergren first-order was verified to be the best to describe the adsorption data. The intraparticle diffusion is not the only rate-controlling step .
