Summary In the reported experiments, equilibrium isotherms have been studied for the adsorption of four dyestuffs, namely, Acid Blue 25, Acid Blue 158, Mordant Yellow 5, and Direct Red 84, onto chitin. Langmuir and Freundlich constants have been determined and the effects of chitin particle size and solution temperature have been investigated. Theoretical isotherms have been compared with experimental data and good agreement was obtained using a composite isotherm of the general form: Y//e equals iC//e/(1 plus jC**m//e), where i,j, and m are constants.
