The use of different chemically modified cassava waste biomass for the enhancement of the adsorption of three metal ions Cd, Cu and Zn from aqueous solution is reported in this paper. Treating with different concentrations of thioglycollic acid modified the cassava waste biomass. The sorption rates of the three metals were 0.2303 min(-1) (Cd(2+)), 0.0051 min(-1) (Cu(2+)), 0.0040 min(-1) (Zn(2+)) and 0.109 min(-1) (Cd(2+)), 0.0069 min(-1) (Cu(2+)), 0.0367 min(-1) (Zn(2+)) for 0.5 and 1.00 M… CONTINUE READING
