    Abstract: Oxidation kinetics of inositol (INOS) by cerium(IV) has been studied spectrophotometrically in perchlorate medium at fixed ionic strength and temperature. The reaction showed a first order dependence with respect to [Ce(IV)] and less than unit order kinetics in both [H+] and [INOS]. Increasing both ionic strength and dielectric constant of the reac...

    Abstract: Activated carbon is essential in adsorption process of different dye and metals from waste streams. The molecular size of different species is different. So they could have some restriction to move into the pore in activated carbons smaller than their molecule size. In this regards a study is conducted to evaluate the adsorption characteristics of ...
