The kinetics and equilibrium of adsorption of hexachloroplatinic acid on activated carbon was studied. The time course of saturation by chloroplatinic acid dissolved in water and in acetone, respectively, was examined on three types of activated carbon with different texture parameters. The effect of the support properties on the shape of the adsorption isotherm for the acid in solution was also investigated.
