Furthermore, negative [DELTA]S[degrees] of the adsorption process shows that the organization of the adsorbate at the solid/solution interface becomes less random.
m] indicates the monolayer sorption capacity of adsorbate (mg/g).
The adsorbate stock solution (1,000 mg/liter) was prepared by dissolving Hg[Cl.
However, these adsorbers contain adsorptive material and adsorbate as working pairs, instead of using CFCs or HCFCs, to generate the cooling effect required by using heat from the exhaust gas.
The data obtained from the various plots as summarized in Table 3 show that adsorption of Cr(III) on NB seems to follow the Langmuir isotherm model fairly well according to the correlation coefficients, indicating that a monolayer of the adsorbate (Cr(III) ions ) coverage could be formed on the surface of the adsorbent.
The surface area of the microspheres was determined by the triple-point BET method (Sorptomatic 1990) with nitrogen as the adsorbate gas and helium as an inert non-adsorbable carrier.
The adsorbing material (usually solid or liquid) is known as adsorbent (sorbent) while the adsorbed material is the adsorbate (sorbate).
4]), coupled with a chemical enhancement due to a charge-transfer interaction between the adsorbate and the metal.
urthermore, by examining the rate of polarization transfer between the protons of the adsorbate and the silicon atoms of the zeolite, information can be obtained about the average location of the adsorbed molecule.
Adsorption of molecules on solids provides a coating of the adsorbate on the particle surface very much similar to the coating of paint on a wall.
Local anesthetic action seems to be controlled by two factors: the size of the adsorbate molecule and some charge-related quality that reflects the ability to act at the receptor site.
