Abstract: The ability of chitosan, a biosorbent obtained by the processing of waste seafood shells, to remove five acid dyes from effluents has been studied. Chitosan is a deacetylated bio-polymer of chitin. The effect of varying initial dye concentration on the rate of adsorption has been investigated. The rate data have been analyzed using three kinetic models, namely, a pseudosecond order, the Ritchie modified second order, and the Elovich models. The sorption kinetics of Acid Green 25, Acid Orange 10, Acid Orange 12, Acid Red 18, and Acid Red 73 onto chitosan can be best correlated by the Elovich equation. The kinetic model was determined in accordance with the agreement between the rate equations and the differentiation of kinetic equations. The values of rate constants for the three models are in the range of 0.003-2.230, 0.004-0.237, and 0.0173-405 for the pseudosecond order, the Ritchie modified second order and the Elovich models, respectively. The sensitivity analysis, by plotting the reciprocal of the rate, ZL = (dq/dt)-1 against time, is used to identify the true kinetic model.
