An increase in soil organic matter displayed an increase in the adsorption coefficients. Hence organic matter showed a positive correlation with adsorption coefficient.
Then, a gas adsorption coefficient is determined in the laboratory, and the gas content is calculated.
Major and minor phases were performed with semiquantitative method on the basis of the intensity counts of specific reflections, the density, and the mass adsorption coefficient of the identical mineral phases [22].
KL is Langmuir adsorption coefficient which gives information about binding sites available on the surface of the adsorbent, calculated as: (5)
where [K.sub.L] is the Langmuir adsorption coefficient and [C.sub.0] is the initial Ni(II) concentration (mg[L.sup.-1]).
The adsorption coefficient, [K.sub.a], related to the apparent energy (surface energy) of sorption was found to be 0.991 L/mg.

where [V.sub.ad] is the adsorbed gas volume, [m.sup.3]/t; a is the Langmuir volume, [m.sup.3]/t; b is the adsorption coefficient, [MPa.sup.-1].
In the above equations, S (rag C/kg) and C (mg C/L) stand for DHA concentrations (OC based) in solid and aqueous phases at equilibrium; [S.sup.0] (mg C/kg) is adsorption capacity in Langmuir modelling and b (L/mg C) is the Langmuir adsorption constant; [K.sub.F] is the Freundlich adsorption constant and n is a nonlinear factor; K (L/kg) is the linear adsorption coefficient. The nonlinear regression was conducted using SigmaPlot (9.0) and statistical analysis conducted using SPSS (10.0).
K is a modified adsorption coefficient which can be estimated from the adsorption isotherm which determines dependence of adsorbed lime concentration ([C.sub.A]) in the hide and on the free solution lime concentration (C) in the equilibrium conditions.
