Abstract :

Environmental solid waste such as country eggshells were effectively utilized to prepare magnetic nano-adsorbent (EM) by ultrasonic assisted co-precipitation method to remove Cr(VI). The sorbent surface, physiochemical, functional bond, and thermogravimetric weight loss, magnetic characteristics of prepared nano-adsorbent were investigated by using different analytical techniques: X-Ray diffractometer, field emission scanning electron microscope, thermogravimetric analyser, Fourier-transform infrared spectrophotometer, and vibrating sample magnetometer. The effect of cluster trial working parameters, such as time, initial Cr(VI) concentration, pH, and co-existing anions were examined. The Langmuir, Freundlich, and Temkin adsorption isotherms were analysed with the batch adsorption equilibrium data ensuring the multilayer adsorption of Cr(VI) onto the EM sites. Thermodynamic parameters were calculated for the batch adsorption process of Cr(VI) removal by EM adsorbent. The novel eggshell coated with magnetic nano-adsorbent (EM) have more prominent adsorbing potential for Cr(VI) removal from its aquatic environment and the best suited for treating surface, underground and tannery effluent with good reusability strength.
