Adsorption of Benzoic and Salicylic Acids Using Sodium and Intercalated Bentonite in Aqueous Solution

Abstract : The aim of this study was to apply a local betonite (Algeria) purified and intercalated with a surfac-tant namely dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTMAB) as an adsorbent to remove benzoic acid(BA) and salicylic (SA) which could be present in wastewaters. This intercalation process leads toimprove the porous texture of materials thatallows adsorbing efficiently organic compounds. Theeffect of various experimental parameters was investigated using a batch adsorption technique.The equilibrium adsorption data were well described by the Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms.The adsorption kinetics of both acids could be considered as pseudo-first order with internal diffusion. The capacity of DTMA–bentonite for Benzoic acid and Salicylic acid was found to be around5 and 3.5 times respectively higher than that of Na–bentonite at 45°C. The thermodynamic study showed that the adsorption is not spontaneous and endothermic.
