The kinetics of sorption of dilute aqueous solutions of acetone, n‐propanol, ethylen glycol, and glycerine by packed beds of Dowex 50W‐X8 (H+) resin have been investigated experimentally. Data indicate that intraparticle diffusion of the solute is rate controlling and that density mixing and nonlinear equilibrium effects must be considered in analyzing this type of operation.
