In this study, powder activated carbon (PAC) and magnetic nanoparticles of iron (III) oxide were used for synthesis of Fe3O4-activated carbon magnetic nanoparticles (AC-Fe3O4 MNPs) as an adsorbent for the removal of aniline. The characteristics of adsorbent were evaluated by SEM, TEM, XRD and BET. Also, the impact of different parameters such as pH, contact(More)
In the present study, powder activated carbon (PAC) combined with Fe(3)O(4) magnetite nanoparticles (MNPs) were used for the preparation of magnetic composites (MNPs-PAC), which was used as an adsorbent for amoxicillin (AMX) removal. The properties of magnetic activated carbon were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron(More)
Emerging and hazardous environmental pollutants like phthalic acid esters (PAEs) are one of the recent concerns worldwide. PAEs are considered to have diverse endocrine disrupting effects on human health. Industrial wastewater has been reported as an important environment with high concentrations of PAEs. In the present study, four short-chain PAEs(More)
Herein, multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were used as the carrier of nano-zero valent iron (nZVI) particles to fabricate a composite known as nZVI@MWCNTs. The composite was then characterized and applied in the nitrate removal process in a batch system under anoxic conditions. The influential parameters such as pH, various concentrations of nitrate and(More)
Herein, activated carbon impregnated iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe3O4/AC) were synthesized to determine their potentials for the adsorption of nonylphenol (NP) in aqueous solution with different experimental variables, namely the pH of the solution, contact time, adsorbent dosage and the initial NP concentration. Additionally, an artificial neural network(More)
BACKGROUND In this work, the magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (MNPs) and silica-coated magnetite nanoparticles (SMNPs) were synthesized as adsorbents for removing humic acid (HA) from water resources. METHODS The adsorption processes were performed in batch experiments with which the influence of pH, reaction time, adsorbent dosage, initial concentrations(More)
In the present systematic review, we aimed to collect and analyze all the relevant evidence on the efficiency of cerium-impregnated versus virgin-activated carbons (ACs) for the removal of gas-phase elemental mercury (Hg0) from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants and to assess the effect of different calcination and operational parameters on their(More)
Recently, adsorption process has been introduced as a favorable and effective technique for the removal of metal ions from aqueous solutions. In the present study, bimetallic nanoparticles consisting of zero valent iron and silver were loaded on the activated carbon powder for the preparation of a new adsorbent (PAC-Fe(o)/Ag). The above adsorbent was(More)
