Article Title: Adsorption of Copper (II) By a Nigerian Brown Coal
by C Ajaero, B.N Okolue and R. N. Oze

The adsorption and desorption rates of Cu (II) by a Nigerian brown coal was investigated under various solution conditions. The adsorption of Cu (II) was found to be chemical in nature and followed first-order kinetics with respect to its concentration in solution.The adsorption isotherm exhibits Langmuir behaviour. Thermodynamic parameters for the adsorption process were determined and discussed.
Keywords: Brown Coal, Cu (II) ions, Adsorption, Desorption
