Abstract

In the present work, the potential of coconut stalk, an agricultural material reused as adsorbent for the phenol removal from wastewater was investigated. The influence of different experimental parameters on the adsorption was investigated. The experimental data were analysed by the various isotherm models. The data were found to follow Freundlich model showing that the process was physical adsorption. The kinetic data were tested by different kinetic equations. The kinetic data obeyed pseudo-first-order kinetic equation. The adsorption capacity of the adsorbent was found to be 38.24 mg/g.
