    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the adsorption capacity of two adsorbents from the lignocellulosic residues of Lophira Lanceolata. The raw hull of Lophira Lanceolata and its activated carbon produced by chemical activation with orthophosphoric acid (H3PO4) at 50% (Vacid/Vwater) of the said hull. The ratio of impregnation to orthophosphoric... Show More
