AbstractThe capability and mechanism of a model azo dye, C.I. Basic Red 46 removal by phycocyanin extraction residue of Spirulina platensis were investigated in this study. The biosorption data were analyzed using Freundlich, Langmuir, and Dubinin–Radushkevich (D–R) isotherm models. Langmuir model was more adequate to represent the data of biosorption equilibrium. The dye biosorption capacity was obtained as 23.06 mg g−1 for the biosorbent. The dye removal potential of phycocyanin-extracted… CONTINUE READING
