|Title: ||THE KINETICS AND THERMODYNAMIC INVESTIGATION OF SORPTION PROCESS OF VANADIUM BY ACTIVATED CHARCOAL|
|Issue Date: ||Dec-1998|
|Abstract: ||The kinetic and thermodynamic investigation of the sorption process of
vanadium by activated charcoal was carried out in three phases.
first phase of the process was the variation of vanadium concentration at constant temperature and weight of charcoal which enable the determination of
order of the reaction with respect to vanadium concentration and this was
to be first order.The second phase was the variation or the weight of activated charcoal at
constant temperature and concentration and the order of reaction will respect to
the amount charcoal was also found to be first figures 6 and 7.
The third phase was the variation of temperature with a fixed concentration of
vanadium and fixed weight of activated charcoal which enable the
determination of activation energy (Ea) of the process. the activation energy
was found to be 8.9598 kj/mole. other parameters like heat of reaction, free
energy change, rate constants at various temperature were also determination as
will be seen in the table of summary of results.
The general rate of the sorption process Ofvanlldi1lII1 by activated charcoal was
a found to be
= 1.3866 exp ~E [V1. [amount of charcoal)|
