In this study, nZVI prepared by borohydride reduction was applied for the removal of Cu ions under a variety of experimental conditions. The uptake experiments investigated the effects of initial concentration, contact time, pH, and repetitive loading on the extent of retardation of Cu ions. Within the applied conditions, the sorbent demonstrated fast uptake kinetics and outstanding fixation abilities up to an initial Cu concentration of 200.0 mg/L. Partitioning of Cu ions between liquid and… CONTINUE READING
