Relationship between Commonly Used Adsorption Isotherm Equations Impedes Isotherm Selection
If the measured isotherm data of an adsorption system are well described by the Freundlich equation, then they can similarly well be described by the bi-Langmuir or tri-Langmuir model in most practical cases. This is proved by Monte Carlo simulation and by comparison of the mathematical functions of the respective isotherm models.
