Preparation, characterization of raw corncob adsorbent for removal of heavy metal ions from aqueous solution using batch method

October-December 2020 - Vol 14 Num. 4

Corncob adsorbent was prepared through environmental friendly process without any additional chemical treatment. The prepared material was characterized by X-ray diffract meter (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and pH points zero charge techniques. The XRD diffracted pattern of corncob adsorbent did...
