Effect of Some Factors on Biosorption of Lead by Dried Leaves of Water Hyacinth ( Eichhornia Crassipes )

Biosorption and removing some heavy metals such as Cd, Pb, Zn and Cr from the aqueous solutions by dried leaves of water hyacinth was investigated, and effect of pH, contact time and adsorpent dose on biosorption also studied. The results revealed the ability of water hyacinth to remove heavy metals from the aqueous solutions but there was a distinctive… CONTINUE READING
