Adsorption onto activated carbon has emerged as one of the best available technologies for complying with existing effluent and water quality standards. One of the key parameters for the design of GAC adsorption systems is the capacity of activated carbon for the retention of compounds of interest. Use of the bottle-point technique has resulted in successful GAC adsorptive capacity determinations for a variety of organic compounds. The study, however, shows the bottle-point technique to be unacceptable in oxic and anoxic adsorptive capacity determination for a number of organic compounds.
