Equilibrium and Kinetic Modeling of Adsorption at Solid/Solution Interfaces

Pp. 32-80 (49)

Wojciech Plazinski and Anita Plazinska

Abstract

This chapter aims at presenting the most common models describing the adsorption at solid/solution interfaces. Considerations are limited to the batch-type adsorption systems. The presented models are divided into two groups: models related to the equilibrium state and those describing the time-evolution of the adsorption system ('kinetic models'). A special emphasis is put on the relation between the physical models and the empirical and/or semi-empirical mathematical expressions. The issue of interpretation of the experimental data is also briefly discussed in the context of various models.
