  • The objective of this study is to assess the biosorption potential of Cr(VI) using Acacia nilotica leaves(AN). The adsorbent was characterized using scanning electron microscope, energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer and Fourier Transform Infrared. An biosorption study was conducted in a batch system to optimize process variables such as initial concentration of Cr(VI), pH, contact time, and process temperature, and on flow rate and the bed thickness in the fixed bed column mode. The optimal pH… CONTINUE READING
