Adsorption of Metal Ions from Aqueous Solutions: Algorithm Development
The development of a general algorithm for the calculation of metal ion adsorption from aqueous solutions at equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions is presented. This algorithm, named KINEQL (Yiacoumi, 1992), incorporates elements from existing equilibrium algorithms with new elements for kinetic calculations.
