Biosorption of metal ions using a low cost modified adsorbent (Mauritia flexuosa): experimental design and mathematical modeling.

Abstract

Buriti fibers were subjected to an alkaline pre-treatment and tested as an adsorbent to investigate the adsorption of copper, cadmium, lead and nickel in mono- and multi-element aqueous solutions, the results showed an increase in the adsorption capacity compared to the unmodified Buriti fiber. The effects of pH, adsorbent mass, agitation rate and initial… (More)
