Adsorption is one of the widely applied techniques for removal of hazards from aqueous solution. Its kinetics studies are of great significance to evaluate the adsorption performance and reveal the underlying mechanisms. There are several mathematic models to describe the adsorption process and diffusion mode. In recently years, more and more adsorption kinetics models with more informational parameters are investigated, which could give guidance for industrial conversion through supplying paramount importance parameters. Here, we reviewed several widely used adsorption kinetics models and paid more attention to their potential values of industrial application guiding. We believe that the review is of certain significance and improvement of applied adsorption kinetics modeling.
