  journal={African Journal of Biotechnology},
The uptake of fast orange dye by the red seaweed Laurencia papillosa has been demonstrated in order to explore its potential use as low-cost adsorbent. The adsorption kinetics of fast orange dye on the alga with respect to initial dye concentration, contact time, particle size and pH were investigated. The dye removal percentage increased from 25.92 to 67.08% and the equilibrium states were attained at almost 60 min within the experimental concentration range. The adsorption kinetic was… Expand

Adsorption of Methylene Blue dye using Marine algae Ulva lactuca


Kinetic and equilibrium studies of methylene blue biosorption by Posidonia oceanica (L.) fibres.
Batch biosorption experiments were carried out for the removal of methylene blue, a basic dye, from aqueous solution using raw Posidonia oceanica (L.) fibres, a marine lignocellulosic biomass, and showed that biosOrption capacity was optimal using 6-9 solution pH range and by increasing the biosorbent concentration up to 1 g/L.

Adsorptive removal of methylene blue by tea waste.
The adsorbent capacity of methylene blue onto tea waste was found to be as high as 85.16mg/g, which is several folds higher than the adsorption capacity of a number of recently studied in the literature potential adsorbents. Expand
Kinetics and thermodynamics of Methylene Blue adsorption on Neem (Azadirachta indica) leaf powder
Abstract The dye, Methylene Blue, was adsorbed on an adsorbent prepared from mature leaves of the Neem tree (Azadirachta indica). A batch adsorption study was carried out with variable adsorbateExpand
Removal of basic dye (Astrazon Blue FGRL) using macroalga Caulerpa lentillifera.

Adsorption of dissolved Reactive red dye from aqueous phase onto activated carbon prepared from agricultural waste.
The overall rate of dye adsorption appeared to be controlled by chemisorption, in this case in accordance with poor desorption studies. Expand
Decolorization of azo dye using PVA-immobilized microorganisms.
Examination of the mechanism of the decolorization process by cell beads indicated that it proceeded primarily by biologicalDecolorization associated with partial adsorption of the dye onto the entrapped cells and gel matrix. Expand
