Among heavy metals, Pb(II) is considered to be very toxic, and hence its removal from contaminated water is of great significance in safeguarding the quality of the environment. Removal of Pb(II) by means of adsorption on Citrus grandis (Pomelo) leaves (PL) is determined to produce attractive results. Characterisation of the PL done using Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) images of PL before and after loaded of Pb(II) showed significant changes of surface morphology, clearly indicating the… Expand
