Adsorption finds extensive applications both in research laboratory and in industry. Few of its application are as follows: 1) gas masks, 2) clarification of sugar 3) paint Industry 4) catalysis 5) chromatographic analysis 6) hard water softening 7) wastewater treatment etc., New trends are seen in applications of colloidal science for protecting soil systems, purification and production of drinking water, water and groundwater treatment, biosorbents and new adsorbents for removal of pollutants from wastewaters and sewages, selective sorbents for hot combustion gases and so on. This special issue is to highlight a wide spectrum of themes referring to the adsorption employed in environmental and industrial applications featuring modeling of both sorbents and environmentally-friendly processes.
Aims and Scope:
1. Fundamental and Practical aspects of Adsorption. 2. Novel theories, semi-empirical models. 3. Kinetic models. 4. Chemical, biochemical, environmental, and other industrial applications. 5. New adsorbents, biosorbents, resins and polymeric adsorbents. 6. Purification or bulk separation. 7. New trends in application of adsorption.
