This paper describes modification of a natural adsorbent with Fenton reagent and determines the removal of Cd(II) ions from aqueous solution. Changes of the surface properties of adsorbent materials were determined by the FT-IR analysis after the modification of pine bark. The effect of Fe2+/H2O2 ratio, ORP, pH, and contact time were determined. Different adsorption isotherms were also obtained using concentrations of Cd(II) ions ranging from 0.1 to 100 mg L(-1). The adsorption process follows… CONTINUE READING
