  • The effect of co-existing solutes on arsenate removal with hydrotalcite compound

    Hydrotalcite (HTAL-Cl), an inorganic anion exchanger, is of use as an adsorbent for the removal of arsenate (As(V)) in water systems. The adsorption properties of HTAL-Cl for As(V) and the effects of co-existing anions on the As(V) removal performance were investigated in this work. Under the conditions of pH≥4, the adsorption capacity for As(V) gradually decreased with an increase of pH, but ...
