In this paper, the cobalt-substituted aluminophosphate CoAPO-11 was prepared and utilized for the adsorption of phenol in cigarette smoke. XRD, XPS, SEM, TPD and N2-sorption results suggested that the product possessed highly crystallized AEL topology with mesoporous structure, and the existence of Co in the framework provided acid sites and base sites to the sample. The adsorption kinetic data were modeled through the pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order kinetic equations using linear and non-linear methods, and the result demonstrated that the adsorption character of phenol on CoAPO-11 obeyed the pseudo-second-order kinetic model and the adsorption process occurred via film and intra-particle diffusion. The CoAPO-11’s adsorption capacity for phenol was generally positively correlated with its specific surface area and pore volume, and it could reduce the content of phenol in the cigarette smoke by 23%. In addition, it was effective for reducing HCN and croton aldehyde, which evidenced it an excellent multifunctional adsorbent for cigarette smoke.
