    Abstract: The electrochemical property of paracetamol was investigated at a glassy carbon electrode and activated glassy carbon electrode. Differential pulse voltammetry and cyclic voltammetry were used as diagnostic techniques in the determination of paracetamol. The activated glassy carbon electrode exhibited excellent electro-catalytic behaviour for the o... Show More

    Abstract: Chemical reactions in an open system are accompanied by direct and reverse transformations of components. In this case, irreversible processes are characterized by production of entropy of both direct and reverse transformations. Negentropy is production of the entropy of the reverse transformation. According to the second law of thermodynamics, pr... Show More

    Abstract: Ethyl violet (EV) is one of the common pollutants in industrial wastewaters. This study presents the kinetic, isotherm and thermodynamic characterization of the adsorptive removal of EV from aqueous solution by used black tea leaves (UBTL) as a low cost adsorbent. Batch adsorption experiments were performed to investigate the effects of initial dye... Show More
