Abstract:
Batch and column experiments were performed to investigate the adsorption of bacteriophage MS-2 to silica at pH 5. Linear isotherm analysis of batch experiment data gave partition coefficient (KP) estimates of 270 cm³/g and 580 cm³/g for 4°C and 24°C, respectively. Breakthrough-type column experiments indicated that sorption and desorption were slow, as evidenced by a slow approach to breakthrough and tailing of the desorption limb. A non-equilibrium advection-dispersion model with all adsorption sites on the silica assumed to be kinetically controlled was used to model the column data. The model-generated parameters yielded Kp estimates 1000-fold smaller than those given by isotherm analysis and indicated that the time scale for desorption is on the order of 1-6 hours.
