Study of Mass Transfer Coefficient of Cephalexin Adsorption onto Walnut Shell-Based Activated Carbon in a Fixed-Bed Column

The adsorption of cephalexin (CFX) onto walnut shell-based activated carbon (AC) was investigated. The mass transfer coefficients were calculated by employing constant wave propagation theory. The effect of different conditions on the mass transfer coefficient was also studied. In addition, three models to predict the mass transfer coefficient were developed.
