Abstract  

The heat, equilibrium, and kinetics of adsorption of 1-ethoxy-2-propanol vapours on granulated activated carbon were determined simultaneously by a reaction calorimeter SETARAM C80 D at T=298.15 K at various relative vapour pressures (0.1< p/ps<0.8). The adsorption isotherm was correlated by the Freundlich equation. It was observed that the enthalpies of adsorption decrease slightly with increasing of the relative vapour pressure of the adsorptive. The rate of adsorption were calculated from analysis of the heat flux signals and it was found that the mass-transfer coefficient for 1-ethoxy-2-propanol vapours in granulated activated carbon increased with increasing relative vapour pressure of the adsorptive.
