Modeling and optimization of nonylphenol removal from contaminated water media using a magnetic recoverable composite by artificial neural networks.

Herein, activated carbon impregnated iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe3O4/AC) were synthesized to determine their potentials for the adsorption of nonylphenol (NP) in aqueous solution with different experimental variables, namely the pH of the solution, contact time, adsorbent dosage and the initial NP concentration. Additionally, an artificial neural network… CONTINUE READING
