Abstract

Sorption of anionic surfactants onto mineral oxides and, and the subsequent partitioning of non-ionic organic substance into the organic phase of these synthetic sorbents was studied. The effectiveness of these synthetic sorbents for the treatment of water containing traces of non-ionic organic pollutants was investigated in continuous flow column experiments. The advantage of such a treatment system is that the sorbent can be regenerated in-situ.
