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)
