Abstract: A pseudo-second order rate equation describing the kinetics of sorption of divalent metal
  ions onto sphagnum moss peat at different initial metal ion concentrations and pear doses has
  been developed. The kinetics of sorption were followed based on the amounts of metalsorbed at
  various time intervals. Results show that sorption (chemical bonding) might be rate-limiting in
  the sorption of divalent metal ions onto peat during agitated batch contact time experiments. The
  rate constant, the equilibrium sorption capacity and the initial sorption rate were calculated.
  From these parameters, an empirical model for predicting the sorption capacity of metal ions
  sorbed was derived.
