Although various biosorbents have been reported effective to purify wastewaters containing heavy metals, the high tendency to decomposition in the environment makes them unsuitable for long-term persistent utilization. In this paper, a simple and new activation method was proposed to mineralize the Firmiana Simplex leaf (FSL) into an enhanced adsorbent for Pb(II) removal from aqueous solution. The leaves activated at various temperatures were characterized with BET N(2) adsorption test, FT-IR… CONTINUE READING
