Sorption of Cu (II) Ions by Adsorption using Orange Peel
The purpose of the present work is to find out feasibility of the process to remove copper ions from the aqueous solution using powdered orange peel as an adsorbent. Powered activated carbon was also used along with pretreated orange peel to compare the efficiencies. Adsorption is taken into consideration to be one of the most excellent technologies broadly used in international environmental safety regions. Batch adsorption study was conducted to find out the impact related to the numerous strictures like pH, contact period, adsorbent dosage, concentration of preliminary metal Cu(II) ions besides the size of the adsorbent particle on the removal of copper ions from synthetic solutions. The statistics related to the adsorption isotherm which was obtained by carrying out the experiments, performing modeling of such data is very important so that forecasting of adsorption besides knowhow of adsorption. Experimental statistics were investigated with the use of numerous models related to the adsorption and that includes BET model, Freundlich model, Langmuir model as well as Modified Freundlich isotherms model. Equilibrium facts are also evaluated with the use of above-mentioned models related to the process of adsorption.
