Development of a Plant Biomass-based Metal Sorption Column
The present invention provides a process for developing a plant biomass based biosorption column for the removal of metal ions. The biomaterial comprising of leaves of Jatropha is immobilized on a modified silica gel. The silica gel is modified with cationic polymers for improving the binding of the biomaterial, porosity of the column and to maintain uniform flow rate. The biosorption column may have possible application in the removal of specific ions from contaminated sites or wastewater.The prepared biosorbent column are very cheap, recyclable and can be used for selective sorption of Cr (VI) and Cu (II) ions from synthetic multi-elemental water samples
Area of Application: The prepared biosorbent can be used for purification of water in terms of heavy metals.
Keywords: biosorption, Jatropha
Advantages: The prepared biosorbent column are very cheap, recyclable and can be used for selective sorption of Cr (VI) and Cu (II) ions from synthetic multi-elemental water samples.
