Isotherm and Kinetic Studies of Methylene Blue Adsorption Using Activated Carbon Prepared from Teak Wood Waste Biomass
Gurumoorthy Vijayalakshmi, Balasubramanian Ramkumar and Shanmugavadivelu Chandra Mohan

Abstract:
Background and Objectives: Excessive amount of methylene blue (MB) causes serious environmental problems and very difficult to decompose. Hence, the main objective of the study was to remove MB by using low cost adsorbent. Materials and Methods: The adsorbent was characterized with fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FT-IR) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Various physiochemical parameters such as, contact time, initial dye concentration, adsorbent dosage and pH of dye solution were investigated in a batch-adsorption technique. Present work investigating both adsorption mechanism and adsorption kinetics of methylene blue, onto teak wood biomass from aqueous solution. Results: Equilibrium parameter has analyzed and it was found that Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm fit for data but Langmuir fit better than Freundlich isotherm. The adsorption kinetics study shows adsorption mechanism follows pseudo second order kinetics mechanism. Conclusion: It was found teak wood activated carbon can used as adsorbent for removal of methylene blue dye.
