In the present study adsorption of rhodamine-B from aqueous solution on formaldehyde treated parthenium biomass (WC) and phosphoric acid treated parthenium carbon (PWC) was studied. Aqueous solutions of various concentrations (50-500 mg/l) were shaken with certain amount of adsorbent to determine the adsorption capacity of rhodamine-B on WC and PWC. The effectiveness of formaldehyde treated parthenium biomass (WC) and phosphoric acid treated parthenium carbon (PWC) in adsorbing rhodamine-B from… CONTINUE READING
