Performance of the Materials Tested for Ammonia Removal

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


As explained in Chap.1, the performance of adsorbents is characterized by their adsorption (or breakthrough) capacity. The capacities are reported per mass of adsorbent (as compared to per volume of adsorbent) since the prime objective of this study is to investigate the mechanisms of ammonia adsorption.
