The thermodynamic consistency test proposed by Sircar and Myers was employed to show the effect of the bulk liquid phase on the adsorption from solutions on a solid adsorbent. This effect can invalidate the prediction of the isotherm of the concentration change in a solution from experimental adsorption isotherms of pure components adsorbed from the gaseous phase on the same adsorbent.
