Adsorption of mercury(II) and methylmercury by two tannin sorbents was investigated using radiotracers. High sorption capacities for mercury are registered for both sorbents at pH 7. ForEucaliptus Saligna Sm sorbent (ETS) the maximum sorption capacity was 1.2±0.2 mmol/g and forLysiloma latisiliqua sorbent (LTS) was 8.5±0.2 mmol/g. Methylmercury adsorption maximum was recorded at pH 4 and in buffered solutions at pH2. This species can be recovered in the presence of mercury(II). Influence of… 
Tannin-based adsorbents from green tea for removal of monoaromatic hydrocarbons in water: Preliminary investigations
ABSTRACT In this study, we report the adsorption of benzene and toluene from water using rarely reported tannin adsorbents. Tannin gel and tannin powder were synthesized by adding formaldehyde to
Simultaneous metal adsorption on tannin resins
Vegetable tannin sorbent is evaluated as ion exchange resin using a multitracer study on the adsorption behavior of various elements. Lisiloma latisiliqua L. tannins, polycondensated into spherical
Mercury (II) Removal Using CNTS Grown on GACs
Elemental (metallic) mercury primarily causes health effects when it is breathed as a vapor where it can be absorbed through the lungs, at higher exposures there may be kidney effects, respiratory
Uptake and removal of iron by immobilised persimmon tannin
Persimmon tannin was immobilised with formaldehyde (the aldehyde gel) and potassium peroxodisulfate (the persulfate gel). The resulting gels have high abilities to adsorb iron. The persulfate gel can
Biosorption of Heavy Metals from Water onto Phenolic Foams Based on Tannins and Lignin Alkaline Liquor
In this study, easy to manufacture and ecological solid free-formaldehyde phenolic foams were prepared by a mechanical foaming process from mixtures of tannins and lignin alkaline liquor. The
DNA fragments assembled on polyamidoamine‐grafted core‐shell magnetic silica nanoparticles for removal of mercury(II) and methylmercury(I)
BACKGROUND Hg(II) and MeHg(I) are toxic pollutants causing wide concerns. Polyamidoamine-grafted magnetic silica nanoparticles (Fe3O4-SiO2-PAMAMs) were synthesized as beads, on which herring sperm


Recovery of Uranium by Immobilized Polyhydroxyanthraquinone
Abstract Nine species of polyhydroxyanthraquinone and two of polyhydroxynaphthoquinone were screened to determine which have the greatest ability to accumulate uranium. 1,2-Dihydroxyanthraquinone and
Adsorption mechanism of heavy-metal ion by microspherical tannin resin
The spherical tannin resin (STR) resulting from the reaction between Mimosa (Acacia Mollissima) tannin (condensed-type tannin) and formaldehyde was very porous. The specific surface area of the STR
Speciation of methylmercury and Hg(II) using baker's yeast biomass (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Determination by continuous flow mercury cold vapor generation atomic absorption spectrometry.
This work suggests that the cell rapidly reduces CH3Hg+ to more volatile species, such as Hg(I) or Hg0, whereas Hg2+ is slowly bound and reduced, perhaps because of the different toxicities of the two species.
Methods for preparation of absorbent microspherical tannin resin
Tannin beads formed by reaction of Mimosa tannin (condensed-type tannin) with formaldehyde in nonpolar polybutenous medium were microspherical resins. Resins prepared with 37.5% tannin concentration
Scavenging toxic heavy metal ions from industrial wastewaters — a survey
A review containing 87 references from 1985 to 1990 is presented. The use of biological methods in preference to chemical methods of scavenging toxic heavy metal ions from industrial wastewaters is
