Glycolic acid, is known as hydroxyl-acetate acid, is a vital chemical compound that have many applications, so, its recovery process of glycolic acid is mandatory and essential from its source of production, many processes are used to remove glycolic acid from its aqueous solution. In this article, Adsorption process is applied via using grape leaf residues (GLR) as adsorbent. Thermodynamic and Kinetic Studies were applied to prove the optimal conditions of adsorption process.
