Water treatment of hexavalent chromium by gelatin-impregnated-yeast (Gel-Yst) biosorbent.


A method is described for biosorption and water treatment of Cr(VI) from aqueous and real water samples by using gelatin-impregnated-yeast as a novel biosorbent. Gelatin and yeast materials (Gel-Yst) were combined together to form a novel eco-friendly, non-toxic, non-carcinogenetic, biodegradable, biocompatible and inexpensive biosorbent to enhance the… (More)
