    Abstract: Water contamination by dyes is a worldwide problem. There is, however, limited information on the adsorption of rhodamine B (RhB) and methylene blue (MB) by activated carbon modified by ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). This study aimed to remove MB and RhB from industrial effluent by palm kernel shell modified activated carbon. The specific ... Show More

    Abstract: The impact of simultaneous presence of ethereal oxygen (–O–) and alcoholic (OH) groups on the excess thermodynamic properties and the corresponding behaviour of alkoxy alkanol in binary mixtures has great relevance in understanding the nature of interactions patterns among molecules. Density functional theory (DFT) has progressively developed as a ... Show More
