Kinetic and equilibrium studies of the heavy metal remediation potential of Helix pomentia

Heavy metals are one of the major pollutants in water and are very toxic. However, chitosan – a waste biomass of agricultural products possess the ability to chelate heavy metals in water. In this study, the application of snail (Helix pomatia) shell based chitosan for remediating heavy metals contaminated Osun River (OSR), Odo-ebu stream (OBS) and Aso well water (AWW), all in Osogbo community, Nigeria;...

Effect of solvent type on the yields and mineral compositions of the leaf extracts of Moringa oleifera L.

The present study was conducted for the leaves extract of Moringa oleifera L (Moringeaeae) in different solvents: Fermented maize marsh (Omidun /FMM), hot water (HW), cold water (CW), palm-wine (PW), ethanol, dichloromethane (DCM) and n-hexane to determine the effects of solvent properties on the extraction yields and the compositions of dietary minerals (k, Ca, Mg, Zn, Cu, and Fe) for M. oleifera. The observed yields...
