Nickel (Ni) is an economically important metal characterized by its mechanical strength and anticorrosion properties. With the increasing industrial demand for Ni and the depleting accessible Ni primary ores, sustainable technologies are required for the recovery of this metal from alternative resources. In this study, adsorption using chitosan was investigated as a sustainable technique to recover Ni from sulfate (SO42-) and calcium (Ca) rich secondary resources. The effects of pH, contact… Expand


The Influence of Salt Anions on Heavy Metal Ion Adsorption on the Example of Nickel
The calculated values of Gibbs free energy change ΔG0 confirm the higher adsorption of nickel ions in presence of sulfate ions, and suggest that higher anion valence leads to a higher advertisersorption capacity. Expand
Abstract Activated carbon has been prepared from coirpith by chemical activation and characterized. Carbonised coirpith is able to adsorb Ni(II) from aqueous solution. It was noted that a decreasingExpand
Adsorption of Nickel Ions from Aqueous Solutions by Nano Alumina: Kinetic, Mass Transfer, and Equilibrium Studies
The presence of nickel in aquatic systems due to discharge of industrial effluents is of concern because of its toxic and nonbiodegradable nature. Its removal from water and wastewater is mandatory.Expand
Equilibriums and kinetics studies for adsorption of Ni(II) ion on chitosan and its triethylenetetramine derivative
Abstract The adsorption of Ni(II) ions from aqueous solution by chitosan (CTS) and its triethylenetetramine derivative beads (CCTS) was investigated in a batch adsorption system. Chitosan beads wereExpand
Effect of pH on Competitive Adsorption of Cu(II), Ni(II), and Zn(II) from Water onto Chitosan Beads
The amounts of adsorption of Cu2+, Ni2+, and Zn2+ from single, binary, and tertiary nitrate solutions onto glutaraldehyde cross-linked chitosan beads were measured. The beads had an average particleExpand
Optimization of nickel adsorption from aqueous solution by using activated carbon prepared from waste apricot by chemical activation
Abstract Waste apricot supplied by Malatya apricot plant (Turkey) was activated by using chemical activation method and K2CO3 was chosen for this purpose. Activation temperature was varied over theExpand
Sorption of nickel on chitosan
The sorption of nickel on chitosan was studied using batch method. As a tracer was used radioisotope 63Ni. The effect of pH and contact time to reach sorption equilibrium was investigated. During theExpand
Adsorption behavior of heavy metals on biomaterials.
It is concluded that heavy metal removal using biomaterials would be an effective method for the economic treatment of wastewater through adsorption of Cd(II) and Pb( II) at pH 2-6.7. Expand
Biosorption of nickel onto treated alga (Oedogonium hatei): Application of isotherm and kinetic models.
The proposed adsorbent for nickel removal is effective in terms of its performance and the FTIR results of algal biomass showed that biomass has different functional groups and these functional groups are able to react with metal ion in aqueous solution. Expand
Removal of ni(II) from aqueous solutions by sorption
Adsorption of Ni(II) from its aqueous solutions on China clay, a cheap clay mineral, has been found quite favourable; a maximum removal of 75.3% was obtained at 50 mg L‐1 metal concentration and a pHExpand
