Abstract

Influence of temperature and collector concentration on its adsorption rate on mineral surface was studied as regarding to the 8-hydroxyquinoline/malachite system. Theoretical equations as well as experimental data may be useful to estimate the adsorption rate and kinetics connected to the conditioning stage in mineral flotation in order to optimise the selectivity and the recovery of the desired mineral.
