Adsorbent is a substrate which has the ability to extract certain elements from solids, liquids or gases by adhering with the particles on its surface without changing their physical properties. This process involves formation of either a single layer or multi-layer adsorbate on the surface of the adsorbent. The adsorption can be single layers or multilayers. Adsorbents have several properties such as high abrasion resistance, high thermal stability and small pore diameters, which leads to higher exposed surface area hence, high surface capacity for adsorption. The adsorbents also have a distinct structure which permits fast transport of targeted molecules.

According to a recent study from IndustryARC, the global market value of adsorbent was around $3.8 bn in 2015, where the zeolites type accounted for around 41% of market share.

Adsorbent is a material, which is capable to adsorb other substance. These are available naturally and can be artificially synthesized. Major adsorbents that are used are activated alumina, activated charcoal, activated coal, alumina silica gel, metal oxides, molecular sieves, polymer adsorbents, zeolites and others. Of all the types, zeolites are the commonly used and the major adsorbents. Zeolite is a naturally occurred adsorbent that is slightly processed for the commercial applications. Adsorbents are used in applications such as oil & gas refining, chemicals/petrochemicals, air separation, nuclear waste remediation, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) removal, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning (RAC) systems, water treatment and others for water purification, removal of impurities, to separate gases, drying gases and refrigerant gases, deodorization of gases and so on.
