Adsorption of rhodamine B by acid activated carbon- thermodynamic and
equilibrium studies

A carbonaceous adsorbent prepared from an indigenous waste by acid treatment was tested for its efficiency in removing
Rhodamine B (RDB). The parameters studied include agitation time, initial dye concentration, carbon dose, pH and temperature.

Keywords: activated carbon (FBC), adsorption isotherm, equilibrium, intraparticle diffusion, kinetic and thermodynamic parameters, regeneration pattern, rhodamine B (RDB)
