Adsorption of O-Cresol in Landfill Leachate Using Activated Carbon

Shabiimam M. A. and Anil Kumar Dikshit

Abstract—The adsorptive removal of o-cresol from dilute aqueous solutions was carried using commercial activated carbon. Batch mode studies were performed by varying parameters such as pH, adsorbent dosage and time. It was found that adsorption with activated carbon can remove up to 95% of o-cresol from the wastewater within 10 minutes. The optimum process variables of this adsorption of o-cresol were found as pH 8 and adsorption dosage 5 g/L. The adsorption followed Langmuir Isotherm.

Index Terms—Activated carbon, adsorption, freundlich and langmuir isotherm, o-Cresol.
