  • Abstract Phenolic hydrocarbons such as benzoic acid are widely used in pharmaceutical, petrochemical, and other chemical manufacturing process. Benzoic acid in industrial wastewaters is difficult to be removed by biological treatment process. Adsorption process using activated carbon seems quite simple and cost-effective for such refractory organics removal. In this study, activated carbons were prepared by the pyrolysis of spent chopsticks impregnated by phosphoric acid. The adsorption behaviors of benzoic acid onto the activated carbons prepared under different conditions were compared. The adsorption kinetics and adsorption isotherms were measured and analyzed by different models. The results showed that the pseudo-second-order kinetic model and the Elovich model could fit the experimental adsorption kinetic data; both the Langmuir isotherm model and the Freundlich isotherm model could fit the adsorption equilibrium data.
