Why are powdered substances more effective adsorbents than their crystalline forms?
As Adsorption is directly proportional to the available surface area and powdered form of a substance have a greater surface area than the crystalline form of the substance.
So, greater the surface area of the adsorbent more is the adsorption.
Hence, powdered substances are more effective adsorbents than their crystalline forms
