In the present investigation the equilibrium data were analyzed using the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models.
The results obtained from the batch adsorption experiments conducted to study the effect of the initial dye concentration on dye adsorption were used to investigate the adsorption capacity of fly ash for reactive blue 25 dye through the well-known Langmuir and Freundlich adsorption isotherms.
7 indicated linear plot thus obeying Langmuir isotherm that correspond to a saturated monolayer adsorption of the dye onto the homogeneous surface of NOAC.
vi) Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm for native Bio-sorbent: The equilibrium data was used to develop an equation to correctly characterize the results.
3) The Sips isotherm model is a combination of the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms and can be derived using either equilibrium or thermodynamic approach.
Utilizing above readings, the isotherms for Langmuir and Freundlich models were plotted.
Langmuir saw a pattern to suspect science, which he reduced to six symptoms.
Both model shows monolayer biosorption but compared to Freundlich isotherm, Langmuir fits well with the experimental data shown infig 5 to 9 for all metals.
Alex Langmuir was born in Santa Monica, California, and grew up in New Jersey.
