The Zr(IV) loaded carboxylated chitosan beads (Zr-CCB) was synthesised and fluoride removal studies were carried out in batch equilibration method. The results shows an enhanced defluoridation capacity (DC) of Zr-CCB (4850 mg F(-)/kg) than the carboxylated chitosan beads (CCB) and raw chitosan beads (CB) which possesses the DCs of 1385 and 52 mg F(-)/kg… CONTINUE READING
