The biosorption of cadmium ions onto entrapped Trametes versicolor mycelia has been studied in a batch system. The maximum experimental biosorption capacities for entrapped live and dead fungal mycelia of T. versicolor were found as 102.3 +/- 3.2 mg Cd(II) g(-1) and 120.6 +/- 3.8 mg Cd(II) g(-1), respectively. Biosorption equilibrium was established in about 1 h and biosorption was well described by the Langmuir and Freundlich biosorption isotherms. The change in the biosorption capacity with… CONTINUE READING
