  • Comparative study on metal ions adsorption on a low cost carbonaceous adsorbent kinetic equilibrium and mechanistic studies

    Wastewater generally contains toxic inorganic and organic pollutants. Inorganic pollutants consist of mineral acids, inorganic salts, finely divided metal compounds, trace elements, cyanides, nutrients and organometallic compounds. Some of the trace elements play essential roles in biological processes, but at higher concentrations, they may be toxic to the biota; they disturb the biochemical ...

  • Visible-light assisted methylene blue (MB) removal by novel TiO2/adsorbent nanocomposites

    In present work, visible light sensitive TiO2/adsorbent nanocomposites (TNC) were prepared via a facile wet chemical method. Three types of adsorbents including zeolites (F-9, HSZ-690 and HSZ-930), mesoporous silica (MPS-2.7 and 4) and activated carbon, were used as the porous substrates for nanocomposites. Visible light sensitivity was incorporated to TNCs by nitrogen doping of TiO2, which is ...

  • Adsorption of 2-methylisoborneol and geosmin by a low-cost hybrid adsorbent synthesized from fly ash and bentonite

    This paper describes the synthesis of a low-cost hybrid adsorbent from activation of fly ash and bentonite to remove 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin from water. These substances produce objectionable taste and odor problems at levels as low as 4–10 ng/L and an effective, low-cost method of removal would be useful. The effect of the initial pH, contact time and adsorbent dosage on the ...
