Adsorption Kinetic of Direct Dyes from Aqueous Solution on Zeolite LTA
Keywords:Adsorption, Kinetic, Direct dye, Zeolite LTA
The analysis of adsorption relies on the equilibrium state of the mass. It is the relationship between the concentration of the adsorbate in the liquid phase and the concentration of the adsorbate in the solid phase. The relationship is written as an isotherm of the adsorption graph. Zeolite LTA was used as adsorbent to remove dye from solution in a batch adsorption system. The adsorption isotherm showed that the Langmuir model was better than the Freundlich model. Adsorption of adsorbate consists of a diffusion process through the fluid layer around the adsorbent material and the diffusion in the cavity. This research found that a pseudo-second order model was a better fit to measured adsorption data.
