Sorption of As(V) ions by akaganeite-type nanocrystals
A priority pollution problem, the removal of arsenate oxyanions from dilute aqueous solutions by sorption onto synthetic akaganeite (b-FeO(OH)) was the aim of the present study. This is an innovative inorganic adsorbent material prepared in the laboratory, following a new method of preparation. The effect of akaganeite and arsenate concentration, the contact time, temperature, solution pH value, and ionic strength variation on the treatment process was mainly investigated during this study. Typical adsorption isotherms were determined, which were found to fit sufficiently the typical Langmuir equation. The mechanism of sorption was examined by electrokinetic, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transmission infrared and scanning electron microscopy measurements. Promising results were obtained, due to the favourite characteristics of the adsorbent applied
