REMOVAL OF DYES FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS BY GLAUCONITE IMMOBILISED ON CHITOSAN HYDROGEL BEADS
Languages of publication
The sorption capacity of glauconite, glauconite immobilised on chitosan hydrogel beads and unmodified chitosan hydrogel beads against Reactive Black 5 and Basic Violet 10 was compared in this article. The effect of pH on the sorption effectiveness of dyes on the tested sorbents was investigated and the sorption capacity of sorbents after 24 and 72 h was determined. Langmuir sorption, double Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms were used to describe the experimental data. The adsorption efficiency of the dyes on sorbents containing chitosan was highest at pH 4. In the case of glauconite, Reactive Black 5 removal efficiency was the highest at pH 3, and Basic Violet 10 removal efficiency was highest at pH 2. The sorption capacity of glauconite immobilised on chitosan hydrogel spheres obtained after 72 h was -656.73 mg/g and -32.77 mg/g for Reactive Black 5 and Basic Violet 10, respectively.
