Kinetics for Removal of Reactive Blue 2 from Aqueous Solution on the Nanoporous Carbon Materials Prepared from Balsamodendron caudatum Wood Waste


Balsamodendron caudatum wood waste was employed for the removal of Reactive Blue 2 from aqueous solution under different experimental conditions was investigated. Characterization of activated carbon prepared using Balsamodendron caudatum wood waste by two different processes (BAC1 and BAC2) was employed. The influences of initial Reactive Blue 2 concentration (20, 40 and 60 mg/L), and temperatures (30°, 45° and 60°C) have been reported. A comparison of kinetic models applied to adsorption of Reactive Blue 2 (CI No 61211) on the each adsorbent was evaluated for pseudo first–order, pseudo second-order and Elovich models respectively. Results show that the pseudo first order kinetic model was found to correlate the experimental data well.
