Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are an effective adsorbent for removing various organic and inorganic contaminants because of their high surface area. In this study, MWCNTs were used to investigate the removal of sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS) in industrial wastewater. The effect of pH, adsorbent dosage, dispersion time and temperature on kinetics and equilibrium of SDBS sorption on MWCNTs were examined. Consistent with an endothermic reaction, an increase in the temperature…

Removal of anionic surfactants from wastewater by magnetic mineral sorbents
The simplest and most effective method of removing low concentrations of anionic surfactants such as sodium dodecyl benzenesulfonate (SDBS) and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is adsorption. Among
Adsorption and Desorption Properties of Carbon Nanomaterials, the Potential for Water Treatments and Associated Risks
The water technologies based on the physicochemical adsorption are methods extensively used because are fast, efficient, and cost effective. In this regard, the adsorption capabilities of
Magnetic mineral nanocomposite sorbents for removal of surfactants
Magnetic nanocomposite sorbents MCSp for disposal of surfactants from wastewater were synthesized. Obtained sorbents based on clay mineral saponite and magnetite were characterized by X-ray powder
Magnetic Nanocomposite Sorbents on Mineral Base
Magnetic nanocomposite sorbents on base of saponite, palygorskite, and spondyle clays were created. Physicochemical properties of sorbents were studied by X-ray, energo-dispersive roentgen, scanning
Micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF) – state of the art
Micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF), a surfactant-based separation technique, has meanwhile a long history in research. The MEUF performance depends on a variety of parameters and this review


Adsorption of cesium (I) from aqueous solution using oxidized multiwall carbon nanotubes
Multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were modified by nitric acid solution and then used to study the adsorption of cesium from aqueous solution using a batch technique under ambient conditions. As
Adsorbent selection for anionic surfactant removal from water
In the present study, an attempt was made to find out a low cost adsorbing material for the removal of anionic surfactant (AS) from water. Sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) has been selected as a
Adsorption of Anionic Surfactant by Activated Carbon: Effect of Surface Chemistry, Ionic Strength, and Hydrophobicity
Abstract This work investigates the interrelationship between the adsorbent surface chemistry and relative hydrophobic nature and the solution ionic strength and solution hydrophobicity during dilute
