Activated carbon adsorption is used in many economic areas, including the food, pharmaceutical, chemical, and nuclear industries as well as the treatment of drinking water, urban and industrial waste water, and industrial flue gases. This text introduces industrial and academic users to the parameters and mechanisms involved in the activated carbon adsorption of organic and inorganic compounds. The author clearly explains the surface processes, their energetics, and their adsorption isotherm equations. Taking a unified approach, Activated Carbon Adsorption provides readers with access to the relevant literature in a single source.
