Abstract

The adsorption isotherms of nitrobenzene, 2-chlorophenol and 4-chlorophenol from water on hydrophobic vermiculite were studied. The excess isotherms were obtained by the immersion method. The basal spacings of the hydrophobic vermiculite organocomplexes in the adsorption equilibrium were determined by X-ray diffraction. By combining these two independent methods, the composition and the structure of the interlamellar space were evaluated. The free enthalpy of adsorption and the adsorption capacity were calculated by analyzing the adsorption isotherm on the basis of the Gibbs equation and by the Everett-Schay method.
