Adsorption of basic dye onto activated carbon prepared from durian shell: studies of adsorption equilibrium and kinetics



Adsorption of basic dye onto activated carbon prepared from durian shell: studies of adsorption equilibrium and kinetics



Chemical Engineering Journal 127(1/3): 121-129



An activated carbon was prepared from durian shell and used for the removal of methylene blue from aqueous solutions. The activated carbon was prepared using chemical activation method with potassium hydroxide as the activating agent. The activation was conducted at 673.15 K for 1 h with mass ratio of chemical activating agent to durian shell 1:2. Batch kinetics and isotherm studies were conducted to evaluate the adsorption behaviour of the activated carbon from durian shell.
