Adsorption of the cyanobacterial hepatotoxin microcystin-LR by a low-cost activated carbon from the seed husks of the pan-tropical tree, Moringa oleifera.

Abstract

A low-cost activated carbon from the pan-tropical multipurpose tree Moringa oleifera removes the cyanobacterial hepatotoxin microcystin-LR in quantitative amounts from water in batch adsorption trials. The potential of M. oleifera seed husk carbon for cyanobacterial toxin removal in drinking water treatment in tropical countries is discussed.
