Sorption Kinetics of Cr(lll), Cd(ll) and Pb(ll) ions from aqueous solution by Monkey bread (Piliostigma thonningii) seed pod
Chemistry Research Journal
Adsorbents of natural origin are widely used for industrial wastewater treatment in order to replace currently costly methods of heavy metals removal from solutions. For that purpose, the potential of an agricultural waste, Piliostigma thonningii pod as an adsorbent in the removal of Cr(III), Cd(II) and Pb(II) ions from aqueous solution was investigated. The removal of these metal ions by the biosorbent has been found to be dependent on contact time and adsorbent dose. Results showed that thefatcat:egxp2sownrhtjinmcqgha7htqi
