Adsorption-desorption Study of Heavy Metals on Sandy-loam Soil of Sapele Metropolis Chokor

  title={Adsorption-desorption Study of Heavy Metals on Sandy-loam Soil of Sapele Metropolis Chokor},
  • Published 2017
Adsorption – desorption processes controls the fate and bioavailability of heavy metals in soils. In this study, adsorption-desorption characteristics of aggregated soil samples from Sapele was studied using batch process in order to ascertain how heavy metals cations (Mn, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd & Cr) are adsorbed and desorbed onto and from soil solid phase in a competitive situation. For all metals, we noted a general increase in metal adsorbed as equilibrium concentrations increases. The distribution…

Disparate soil textures as a native medium for As(V) and Pb(II) separation from aqueous systems

This study investigated the use of different natural raw soil materials as low-cost adsorbents for the removal to remove As(V) and Pb(II) from aqueous systems. It deals with the effect of different



Simultaneous Sorption of Cd, Cu, Ni, Zn, Pb, and Cr on Soils Treated with Sewage Sludge Supernatant

Disposal of sewage sludge creates the potential for heavy metal accumulation in theenvironment. This study assessed nine soils currently used as Dedicated Land Disposal units(DLDs) for treatment and

Selectivity Sequence and Competitive Adsorption of Heavy Metals by Brazilian Soils

Heavy-metal cations can be introduced into agricultural soils by application of fertilizers, liming materials, sewage sludge, composts, and other industrial and urban waste materials. Therefore,

Effects of soil organic matter on the kinetics and mechanisms of Pb(II) sorption and desorption in soil

To improve predictions of the toxicity and threat from Pb contaminated soil, it is critical that time-dependent sorption and desorption behavior be understood. In this paper, the sorption and

Distribution coefficients of Cd, Co, Ni, and Zn in soils

SUMMARY Batch adsorption experiments were conducted with a mixture of solutes at low equilibrium concentrations of Cd (0.7-12.6 μg1−1), Co (18-118μg1−1, Ni (22-330 μg 1−1), and Zn (40-1480 μg1−1) in

Retention and Release of Lead by a Silty Loam and a Fine Sandy Loam. II. Kinetics

Abstract The kinetics of lead retention and release by a silty loam and a fine sandy loam was investigated. Batch experiments were conducted to assess the rate and degree of lead retention. The rate

Sorption of trace metals by humic materials in soils and natural waters

Trace metal sorption by coagulated humic acid and peat materials can be described macroscopically either as a complexation or a cation exchange phenomenon. Model equilibrium constants or selectivity

Kinetics of sorption and desorption of copper(II) and lead(II) on activated carbon

The rate of sorption of copper(II) and lead(II) onto activated carbons Nuchar SA and Filtrasorb 400 was observed to occur rapidly at the outset, followed by a slow and prolonged sorption. This

Changes in valued “Capacities” of soils and sediments as indicators of nonlinear and time-delayed environmental effects

The buffering, oxygen-donating, and sorption capacities of soils and sediments as an inter-connected system for regulating the retention and release of chemical pollutants are discussed.

Behavior of fresh vs. aged chemicals in soil

Existing data indicate that chemicals freshly added to soils are more amenable to losses, including biodegradation, than chemicals that have been in contact with soils for extended periods of time.
