Removal of Organic Contaminants from Textile Wastewater by Adsorption on Two Natural Biosorbents
The purpose of this research was to know the adsorption capability of carrot (CTS) seeds and thyme leaves (TEL)
for the elimination of Safranin O dye from aqueous solutions. The influence of multiple factors such as contact time, adsorbate
concentration, adsorbent concentration, and the influence of temperature was examined. The mechanism of adsorption of
Safranin O dye ions onto carrot seeds and thyme leaves were calculated thermodynamically and kinetically. The adsorption
isotherms were described by utilized Langmuir, Freundlich and Dubnin-Radushkevich models.
