Removal of rotenone insecticide by adsorption onto chemically modified activated carbons.


The removal of rotenone from synthetic and real wastewaters using modified activated carbons has been investigated. In order to enhance the removal capacity of rotenone, activated carbon was chemically modified through impregnation with NH(3) and (NH(4))(2)S(2)O(8) solutions. The resulting carbons were found to present different surface chemistries, while… (More)
