Investigation on the Sequestration of Divalent Metal Ions Employing Animal Waste

August 31, 2021 Chemical Science 0

Heavy metal ions are harmful to the environment when their quantities reach certain limits. Because of their ubiquitous use in industries, they have received a lot of attention in terms of reducing and eliminating them. To chelate these toxicants in environmental samples, it is important to produce unique materials in the environment. The current study seeks to investigate the sorption capacity of Goat Hooves, a no cost material, in the process of removing Pb(II) and Cd(II) ions from aqueous medium, based on the requirement for generating zero cost sorbent. After suitable treatment (TGH), goat hooves are submitted to Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy investigations to identify functional groups and describe surface morphology, respectively. Batch equilibration tests are carried out to see how different operating parameters, such as particle size, dosage, beginning concentration, contact time, and pH, affect the final product. Langmuir, Freundlich, and Temkin isotherms are used to model the acquired data. Among the other generated models, the Langmuir plot had greater linearity, indicating monolayer adsorption, which was followed by Pb(II) – TGH and Cd(II) – TGH. Furthermore, when applied to the optimal circumstances of the batch trials, statistical tool analyses using SPSS 20 software revealed a strong correlation value.
