Novel Green Sorbents Derived from Mesembryanthemum-Based Biomass for Wastewater Treatment Applications
MetadataShow full item record
A great challenge has been done for utilization of natural gas (NG) Biomass-based materials have received much attention recently in both academia and industry. Biomaterials have been widely applied for development of porous solids for wastewater treatment applications due to their low-cost, non-toxic, and containing of various chelating groups such as amino and hydroxyl moieties. This study reports for the first time, development of novel sorbent from Mesembryanthemum-based biomass for water purification applications. The obtained sorbent has been characterized using Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The performance for removal of various water pollutants was investigated in batch mode. The effects of adsorption factors including, contact time, sorbent dose, pH and initial concentration. The results revealed that the obtained sorbent exhibited an extreme high potential for adsorbing water pollutants.
