Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide-treated Phragmites australis powder as novel polymeric adsorbent for hazardous Eriochrome Black T removal from aqueous solutions Original Paper First Online: 08 December 2018 Abstract
The potential of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide-treated
Phragmites australis powder ( CTAB- PA) as a novel polymeric sorbent for Eriochrome Black T (EBT) removal was studied. CTAB impregnation process increased adsorption sites availability that led to a better interaction of EBT dye and CTAB- PA. CTAB impregnation process increased the PA monolayer adsorption capacity from 57.14 to 89.93 mg g −1. Adsorption data were modeled using chemical reaction-based kinetic models (pseudo-first-order, pseudo-second-order, and Elovich models) and diffusion-based kinetic models (Weber–Morris and Boyd models). EBT sorption kinetics could be described by the pseudo-second-order model having film diffusion as the main rate-limiting step. Adsorption data for both adsorbents were fitted to Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin, and Dubinin–Radushkevich models, and best fitting was obtained with Langmuir model. Thermodynamic functions indicated that EBT adsorption onto PA and CTAB- PA was an exothermic and physical process. CTAB- PA burning behavior showed that this novel adsorbent can be considered as flame-retarding material. Adsorption–desorption experiments revealed that CTAB- PA could be reused up to five cycles with recovery percentage values maintained higher than 71%. CTAB- PA, a low-cost, durable, flame-retarding, and reusable material, was found to be an attractive candidate for EBT removal from water.
