L-Cysteine methyl ester modified graphite powder (Cyscarbon) was used as a material to remove palladium ions from aqueous media. Cheap graphite powders (2–20 μm in diameter) were surface functionalised with L-cysteine methyl ester. The removal of Pd(II) ions was studied as a function of concentration of Pd(II) ions, contact time with modified carbon and amount of modified carbon used. Determination of palladium ions was performed by adsorptive stripping voltammetry using a mercury nanodroplet… CONTINUE READING
