3.3. Adsorption kinetics
Adsorption rate Umeclidinium bromide very significant for practical applications. The pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order models are herein used to describe the adsorption kinetics.

3.4. Adsorption isotherms
In order to gain a better understanding of sorption mechanisms and evaluate the sorption performance, the experimental data for metal ions adsorption onto PS-GO gel are isotonic analyzed using the Langmuir, Freundlich and Dubinin–Redushckevich adsorption isotherm models.
