The adsorption of the normal aliphatic alcohols and the normal fatty acids containing two to seven carbon atoms from their aqueous solutions on three different non-porous carbon adsorbents has been investigated. In this investigation, absolute solute activity extended in every case from zero to at least 0.88.
