Waste material, hen feather, a biosorbent, was successfully utilized in removing a water-soluble hazardous triphenylmethane dye, Brilliant Blue FCF from wastewater. The paper incorporates effect of pH, temperature, amount of adsorbent, contact time, concentration of adsorbate, etc. The adsorption data validates Langmuir and Freundlich adsorption isotherms(More)
The present investigation assesses the applicability of waste materials--bottom ash and deoiled soya--for the removal of the colorant Congo red from wastewaters. The adsorption characteristics and dye removal efficiency of adsorbents have been determined by investigating factors such as effect of pH, effect of concentration of the dye, amount of adsorbents,(More)
The present study deals with the application of bottom ash, a power plant waste, and deoiled soya, an agricultural waste, for the adsorptive removal of carmoisine A dye from its aqueous solutions. This paper incorporates a comparative study of the adsorption characteristics of the dye on these effective adsorbents along with effects of time, temperature,(More)
Tartrazine, a yellow menace, is widely being used in cosmetics, foodstuffs, medicines and textile. It is carcinogenic and also catalyzes allergic problems. In the present work the ability to remove Tartrazine from aqueous solutions has been studied using waste material-hen feathers, as adsorbent. Effects of pH, concentration of the dye, temperature and(More)
Erythrosine is a popular dye that is widely used in cosmetics, foodstuffs, medicines, and textiles. It is highly toxic to mankind and can lead to many diseases including carcinogenicity. Removal of erythrosine has been carried out using waste material--hen feathers--as adsorbent. The effects of pH, concentration of the dye, temperature, and adsorbent dosage(More)
Aqueous solutions of Safranin-T, a hazardous textile dye, are photodegraded under ultraviolet light using TiO2 as catalyst. The process has been carried out at different pHs, amounts of catalyst, concentrations of the dye, and effects of the electron acceptor H2O2. It is found that under the influence of TiO2 as catalyst the colored solution of the dye(More)
Bottom ash, a waste of thermal power plants, and deoiled soya, an agricultural waste material, were employed for successful removal and recovery of hazardous phenol red dye from wastewaters. The adsorption characteristics and operational parameters were determined by monitoring different parameters such as effect of pH, effect of concentration of the dye,(More)
Bottom ash, a power plant waste, and de-oiled soya, an agricultural waste material, were employed for the removal and recovery of Quinoline Yellow, a water-soluble dye. Characterization of adsorbent materials was made by their infrared and differential thermal analysis curves. Along with batch adsorption studies, which involve effect of pH, adsorbate(More)
This article describes the use of bottom ash [a power plant waste] and de-oiled soya [an agricultural waste] as effective adsorbents for the removal of a hazardous azo dye [Chrysoidine Y] from its aqueous solutions. This paper presents an experimental study and discussion of the adsorption characteristics of this dye on the two adsorbents. The adsorbents(More)
Bottom Ash, a power plan t waste material and De-Oiled Soya, an agriculture waste product were successfully utilized in removing trisodium 2-hydroxy-1-(4-sulphonato-1-naphthylazo)naphthalene-3,6-disulphonate--a water-soluble hazardous azo dye (Amaranth). The paper incorporates thermodynamic and kinetic studies for the adsorption of the dye on these two(More)
