Camel bone charcoal is used as an adsorbent for the removal of Hg(II) from wastewater effluents. The equilibrium data are fitted to Langmiur isotherm rather than linear and Freundlich isotherms. The adsorption capacity Qo is 28.24 mg of Hg(II)/g of the adsorbent. The optimum removal conditions are pH 2, contact time 30 min and temperature 25 degrees C. A comparison of the adsorption capacity (Qo) of camel bone charcoal with different adsorbents previously used for Hg(II) removal from wastewater… CONTINUE READING
