Arsenic toxicity, health hazards and removal techniques from water : an overview
Arsenic contamination in water, especially groundwater, has been recognized as a major problem of catastrophic proportions. The toxicology and health hazard also has been reported for many years.Expand
Oil removal from aqueous state by natural fibrous sorbent: An overview
The threat of oil pollution increases with the expansion of oil exploration and production activities, as well as the industrial growth around the world. The study on the treatment of oily wastewaterExpand
Fatty Acids as Phase Change Materials (PCMs) for Thermal Energy Storage: A Review
Abstract Thermal energy storage (TES) technologies in general and phase change materials (PCMs) in particular, have been topic in research for the last 20 years. Traditionally, available heat hasExpand
A CFD study of the effect of cone dimensions on sampling aerocyclones performance and hydrodynamics
This work presents a Computational Fluid Dynamics calculation to evaluate the effects of cone dimensions on the performance, hydrodynamics and centrifugal forces of sampling aerocyclones (gasExpand
Carbon coated monolith, a mesoporous material for the removal of methyl orange from aqueous phase: Adsorption and desorption studies
The cordierite monolith was successfully modified to carbonaceous material termed as carbon coated monolith (CCM). Surface studies showed about 65% of the total pore volume falls in mesopore rangeExpand
Biosorption and desorption of Nickel on oil cake: batch and column studies.
Biosorption potential of mustard oil cake (MOC) for Ni(II) from aqueous medium was studied. Spectroscopic studies showed possible involvement of acidic (hydroxyl, carbonyl and carboxyl) groups inExpand
Equilibrium, kinetics and thermodynamic studies: adsorption of Remazol Black 5 on the palm kernel shell activated carbon (PKS-AC)
The removal of Remazol Black 5 from the synthetic wastewater using palm kernel shell activated carbon was investigated in terms of initial pH, initial concentration, contact time and temperature. TheExpand
Adsorption of glyphosate onto activated carbon derived from waste newspaper
This paper investigates the ability of activated carbon derived from waste newspaper (WNAC) to remove pesticide glyphosate from aqueous solution. The influence of initial pH was first studied. It wasExpand
Adsorption of carbon dioxide using activated carbon impregnated with Cu promoted by zinc
In the present study, modified activated carbon (AC) was used in a fixed-bed column for CO2 adsorption of gaseous mixtures. The adsorbents were prepared by impregnation two metals Cu and Zn on theExpand
Adsorption of basic dye onto palm kernel shell activated carbon: sorption equilibrium and kinetics studies
Abstract Adsorbents prepared from palm kernel shell, an agricultural waste product, were used to remove a dye, Basic Blue 9, from an aqueous solution in batch mode at a constant temperature of 28 °C.Expand
