A magnetic filtration has firstly been applied to the phosphate removal from wastewater by using schwertmannite, which is ferric oxyhydroxide sulfate with high capacity of phosphate adsorption. High efficiency of phosphate removal without using magnetic seeding was obtained at magnetic intensities of around 1 Tesla, which means no necessity to use a superconducting magnet. The kinetics data of phosphate adsorption have been found to be fitted well with a pseudo-second-order model and adsorption… Expand

Removal of fluoride ions from aqueous solution at low pH using schwertmannite.
The experimental and equilibrium modeling results revealed that the capacity of schwertmannite for fluoride is high but insensitive to changes in solution temperature, and an increase in equilibrium pH of sample solution reduced significantly the fluoride removal efficiency. Expand

Phosphorus adsorption on natural sediments: modeling and effects of pH and sediment composition.
The fact that the amount of P sorbed and zeta potential of sediment particles have no necessary relationship reveals that a strong contribution to the P binding still comes from a ligand-exchange process on the Me- OH(2+) and Me-OH sites rather than electrostatic attraction. Expand
