Abstract:

Multicomponent adsorption is typically described by a system of

conservation laws in which the nonlinear flux terms come from explicit

functional relationships called isotherms. Unfortunately the most popular

extended Langmuir isotherm is thermodynamically inconsistent. We discuss

analysis and numerical approximation of multicomponent adsorption system where

the thermodynamically consistent isotherms are given only implicitly
