Removal of Molybdate and Arsenate from Aqueous Solutions by Flotation
Ion flotation and adsorbing colloid flotation have been studied in this paper for the effective removal of molybdenum(V1) and arsenic(V) from dilute aqueous solutions. These different flotation methods were also compared. Ion flotation using a cationic surfactant (dodecylamine) as collector, as well as adsorbing colloid flotation using ferric hydroxide as coprecipitant (or sorbent) and an anionic surfactant(sodium dodecyl sulfate) as collector were examined. Laboratory-scale experiments were conducted in order to assess the effects of the following parameters on the efficiency of the process: pH value, dosages of chemical reagents, initial concentrations of arsenic and molybdenum, and the prerence of foreign anions, such as C1- and SO4 2- . In practical applications, ion flotation or adsorbing colloid flotation may be selected according to the concentration of arsenic, molybdenum, and also the initial [Mo]/[As] molar ratios in solution.
