Determination of Adsorption of Acidic Dye from Aqueous Solutions onto Blue Green Algal Biomass: An Approach to Kinetic, Equilibrium and Thermodynamic Studies

In a batch mode, the adsorption of an acidic dye, Methyl Orange (MO), onto non-viable blue green algal biomass, Oscillatoria sp., was studied in aqueous solutions with respect to operational parameters such as contact duration, adsorbent dose, pH, and temperature. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, elemental analysis, and scanning...

Study on Biosorption of Divalent ion onto Treated Prosopis Juliflora Bark from Aqueous Solutions: An Approach towards Isothermal and Statistical Analysis

The current study focuses on the use of Prosopis juliflora bark for Cu adsorption (II). To improve sorption effectiveness, raw Prosopis juliflora bark is treated with 0.1N hydrochloric acid. Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis, Bruner-Emmet-Teller, and Barrett-Joyner-Halenda studies were used to characterise TPJB. The maximum amount adsorbed...

Experimental Approach to Chemical Evolution

The formation of essential biomonomers from simpler molecules present in the prebiotic world, and their subsequent condensation to biopolymers, was the beginning of life processes. The effects of nucleic acid bases (thymine and uracil) at two separate concentrations (1 x 10-4 M and 1 x 10-5 M) on pH...
