The adsorptive removal of arsenic from water using a multiwall carbon nanotube-zirconia nanohybrid (MWCNT-ZrO(2)) is presented. The MWCNT-ZrO(2) with 4.85% zirconia was effective in meeting the drinking water standard levels of 10 μg L(-1). The absorption capacity of the composite were 2000 μg g(-1) and 5000 μg g(-1) for As(III) and As(V) respectively… CONTINUE READING
