Removal of heavy metals from contaminated water by petiolar felt-sheath of palm.

Abstract

The ability of a reticulated fibrous network of palm petiolar felt-sheath (PPF) to remove toxic metals such as Cd, Cu and Zn from contaminated water was investigated as a new biosorbent system. PPF was found to sequester metal ions efficiently from dilute aqueous solutions with a selectivity order of Cd > Cu > Zn. The extent of adsorption was found to be… (More)
