The work in this paper was planned with the aim of extracting the cellulosic component of palm tree waste and functionalizing this cellulose through graft copolymerization with acrylic acid. The cellulose extraction included hot alkali treatment with aqueous sodium hydroxide to remove the non-cellulosic binding materials. The alkali treatment was followed(More)
A cellulosic component was extracted from low-value palm tree wastes, empty fruit bunches, and functionalized through grafting with acrylic acid in a previous study. The as-synthesized poly(acrylic acid)/cellulose graft copolymer was applied in the current study as an adsorbent for the removal of the cationic dye methylene blue and the heavy metal lead from(More)
