Prospect of Bioactive Glass Ceramic Adsorption for Copper Ions Removal from Water
- 14 Downloads
Glass ceramic derived from the well-known 46S5.2 bioactive glass was prepared by full replacement of silicate partner using boron oxide via two-step crystallization technique. The obtained ceramic sample was characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) in combination with X-ray diffraction (XRD). UV/Vis. Optical absorption spectroscopy was employed to retrace selective copper ion absorption from a water contaminated with a minor percent of copper ions. Reusability test was performed for the same glass ceramic samples to ensure possible use in water treatment applications.
