Volume 5, Issue 4 , Autumn 2019, , Pages 485-500


  Four diverse chlorides layered double hydroxides with diverse ratios, i.e. Mg-Al (3:1), Mg-Al (4:1), Zn-Al (4:1), and Zn-Al (3:1) LDHs, were prepared to evaluate their efficiency and selectivity towards nitrate removal from aquatic solutions. A batch experiment was done at the initial nitrate concentration ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 3 , Summer 2016, , Pages 257-264


  Heavy metal contamination in the environment could cause harmful effects both to human health and aquatic life. Numerous remediation methods had been developed to encounter with the contamination problem prior to degrade, decrease and to purify the contaminated water at minimal concentration as low as ...  Read More

3. Equilibrium and kinetic study on chromium (VI) removal from simulated waste water using gooseberry seeds as a novel biosorbent

J. Aravind; G. Sudha;; P. Kanmani; A.J. Devisri; S. Dhivyalakshmi; M. Raghavprasad

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2015, , Pages 233-244


  Gooseberry seed (Phyllanthus acidus) was used as an adsorbent to determine its feasibility for the removal of Cr(VI). Various parameters such as pH, temperature, contact time, initial metal concentration and adsorbent dosage were investigated to determine the biosorption performance. Equilibrium was ...  Read More
