Stuides On Nickel (II) Ions Removal From Aqueous Solution By Using Citrus Aurantium L. Fruit Shells - A Low Costnanosorbent

Authors(3) :-S. Halimabi AliasShakilaBanu, R. Sharmila, G. Vijayakumar

Carbon materials are a class of significant and widely used engineering sorbents. As a new member of the carbon family, carbon nano-sorbents have exhibited great potentials in various applications especially the removal of pollutants from industrial wastewater. Therefore, the attempt has been made to study the removal of Ni(II) ions from aqueous solution using the nano-sorbent derived from Citrus aurantium L. fruit shells . The adsorptioncapacities are studied from adsorption isotherms such as Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms. The rate of sorption has proposed by the pseudo-first and second order kinetic models. The experimental results are correlated with FT-IR and SEM studies. The sorption capacity of NI(II) ions are observed as very good in Citrus aurantium L. fruit shells nano-sorbent.
