Abstract: The adsorption of Pb2+, Cd", Cu2+, Zn2+ and AI3+ onto peat has been studied using a system of standardised batch adsorbers under equilibrium and transient rate conditions. Models based on the assumption of a single external mass transfer resistance to adsorption have been developed to attempt to predict the concentration decay curves obtained experimentally, for several variable system parameters, under transient batch conditions. In this instance the single resistance is taken as that of film diffusion of th…
