A model is formulated of nonisothermal adsorption in a single sorbent particle on the assumption that the adsorption takes place in terms of a so-called "shell-progressive" mechanism, external heat transfer only being considered. The model results are compared with experimental ones and with those of diffusion model formulated by us previously.
