An Efficient Activated Carbon for the Wastewater Treatment, Prepared from Peanut Shell
Abstract: My group is actively involved in the research “Preparation of activated carbon from peanut shell, characterization and its use as adsorbent and as a support for catalyst. The paper published in the MRC entitle “An Efficient Activated Carbon for the Wastewater Treatment, Prepared from Peanut Shell” Modern Research in Catalysis, 2013, 2, 148-156, was submitted in the earlier stage of research, at present stage I am fully convinced that the kinetic section of the paper is totally incorrect. Therefore I appeal that remove the paper from the Journal site to avoid the citation of incorrect literature.
