Pipet 1 mL containing the equivalent of 50 µ g phenol into each beaker and stir 90 minutes. Test for phenol in solution at equilibrium. Results: #1 40 µ g/L, #2 16 µ g/L, #3 10 µ g/L and #4 4 µ g/L of phenol.

Adsorption 4 Adsorption a) usually limited to activated carbon because of economics b) Removes dissolved solids by mostly physical attraction (could be chemisorption sometimes) at a interface - here a solid/liquid interface but could be L/L, G/L, G/S, or as is in this case, S/L.
