Chemisorption occurs due to chemical bonding and mostly this is irreversible. The adsorption is accompanied by liberation of heat, which is significant in chemisorption. Chemisorption phenomenon is very important for catalysis. In case of catalyzed reactions, the reactants adsorbs on the catalyst active sites and forms complex. According to investigations by various researchers, the important phenomenon in chemisorption of metal ions is formation of chemical bonds between the surface of solids (adsorbent) and heavy metals.

Key words: Kinetic models, Rate limiting step, adsorption rate, thermal stability.
