  author={Niyaz Mohammad Mahmoodi and Shooka Khorramfar},
  journal={Desalination and Water Treatment},
AbstractIn this paper, the effect of activated carbon (AC) on the photocatalytic degradation of dyes using photo-Fenton process was investigated. Reactive Red 198 (RR198) and Reactive Red 120 (RR120) were used as model dyes. The surface characteristics of AC were investigated using Fourier transform infrared. Photocatalytic dye degradation was studied using UV–Vis spectrophotometer and ion chromatography. The effects of AC dosage, initial dye concentration, pH, and salt on dye degradation were…

Pseudo-stem banana fiber as a potential low-cost adsorbent to remove methylene blue from synthetic wastewater

In this work, pseudo-stem banana (Musa acuminata) (PBF) fiber was utilized as a potential low-cost natural adsorbent to uptake methylene blue (MB) dye from synthetic wastewater by batch adsorption

Avocado seed powder: characterization and its application for crystal violet dye removal from aqueous solutions

AbstractThis study presents removal of crystal violet (CV) dye from aqueous solutions using solid food waste, avocado kernel seed powder (ASP). ASP was used in the native form for biosorption study.
