The effects of the type and concentration of ligands on the removal of Cu by micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF) with the help of either anionic or cationic surfactants were investigated. The removal efficiency of copper by anionic surfactant-(SDS-) MEUF depends on the ligand-to-Cu ratio and the ligand-to-Cu complexation constant. At fixed ligand-to-Cu ratio, the Cu removal efficiency decreases in the order of citric acid>NTA>EDTA, which is the reverse order of Cu-ligand complexation… CONTINUE READING
