- Freundlich equation
The Freundlich Adsorption Isotherm is an
adsorption isotherm, which is a curve relating the concentrationof a soluteon the surface of an adsorbent, to the concentration of the solute in the liquid with which it is in contact.
The Freundlich Adsorption Isotherm is mathematically expressed as:
massof adsorbate:m = mass of adsorbent:p = Equilibrium pressureof adsorbate:c = Equilibrium concentrationof adsorbate in solution.K and 1/n are constants for a given adsorbate and adsorbent at a particular temperature.
There are basically two well established types of adsorption isotherm:
*the Langmuir adsorption isotherm (see
*the Freundlich adsorption isotherm
The Langmuir adsorption isotherm describes quantitatively the build up of a layer of molecules on an adsorbent surface as a function of the concentration of the adsorbed material in the liquid in which it is in contact. In a modified form it can also describe a bi-layer deposition. The shape of the isotherm (assuming the (x) axis represents the concentration of adsorbing material in the contacting liquid) is a gradual positive curve that flattens to a constant value. It often represents an initial surface adsorption followed by a condensation effect resulting from extremely strong solute-solute interaction. In
chromatographythe Freundlich isotherm is not common, most adsorption processes are best described by the Langmuir isotherm.
