Thesis on adsorption of metals

The competitive effects of soluble material leached from the adsorbents that also bind metal ions were studied.

Removal of heavy metals from water by adsorption

University of Otago. The R values in the control soils were reducing with aging but in the treated soils, it was increasing with the resupply slower in D. Date: The adsorption of the metal ions was found to follow the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. An interaction time of 30 minutes was sufficient to achieve maximum uptake. It was found that the adsorption followed pseudo second order rate. Dynamical analysis were made by studying Lagergren psuedo- second order model and intraparticle diffusion model. Batch adsorption experiments were carried out using the adsorbent prepared from the pods and leaves of Delonix regia in order to determine the suitable operating parameters for the adsorption of the target heavy metals from synthetic metal solutions.

However, the rate limiting step can be either particle diffusion or liquid diffusion. In the OM soils, treatment types and aging have no effect on metal resupply. The focus of the present study is on investigating the adsorption characteristics of Delonix regia for the sorption of Pb, Ni, Cu, Cd and Co from polluted water and stabilization of contaminated soils.

Column adsorption studies showed that metal ions adsorbed by coffee grounds could be quantitatively leached in dilute acid solution without any loss of subsequent adsorption properties, thus promoting efficient re-use of the column for many adsorption cycles.

The acid base chemistry of both tea leaves and coffee grounds, and the soluble materials leached from the fresh tea and coffee, were studied using potentiometric titration.

However, some preliminary work was also conducted using spent tea leaves.

Further investigation for availability and resupply kinetic assessment before and after remediation was done using the DGT technique and DIFS model. However, mixed surfactants can be suggested as effective adsorbents for heavy metal removal than single surfactants on account of better percentage removal at relatively low CMC and post-treatment sludge production.

Delonix regia could be used to remove these target metals from organic matter rich agricultural soil while the biochar with higher removal efficiency in most soil samples is better suitable for acidic and poor organic matter soils.

An interaction time of 30 minutes was sufficient to achieve maximum uptake. The adsorbent was also found to be largely unaffected by biological degradation.

The Kd, labile pool size is increasing with aging time. The adsorption of heavy metals by waste tea and coffee residues Thesis, Doctor of Philosophy.
