Biosorption of lead ions by cyanobacteria Spirulina platensis: kinetics, equilibrium and thermodynamic study

Biosorption of lead ions by cyanobacteria Spirulina platensis: kinetics, equilibrium and... AbstractThe potential use of dry Spirulina platensis biomass to remove lead ions from aqueous solution was investigated. Effects of various parameters such as contact time, temperature, dosage of biosorbent, initial pH, and initial concentration of lead were investigated in the batch adsorption mode. The highest lead removal of 5.7 mg/g was obtained at pH 5, biomass dosage of 0.5 g, initial lead concentration of 60 mg/L. The Langmuir and Freundlich models fit the experimental data (R2 > 0.99), while the kinetic data was best described using the pseudo second-order kinetic model (R2 > 0.99). FTIR spectra indicated that the metal removal takes place through binding to OH, C=O and P=O groups. Lead was efficiently recovered from biomass by mineral acids, while using CH3COOH and NaOH as eluents the biomass maintained high biosorption capacity during three cycles. This study demonstrates the potential of using Spirulina platensis as biosorbent to remove lead from industrial wastewater. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nova Biotechnologica et Chimica de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe potential use of dry Spirulina platensis biomass to remove lead ions from aqueous solution was investigated. Effects of various parameters such as contact time, temperature, dosage of biosorbent, initial pH, and initial concentration of lead were investigated in the batch adsorption mode. The highest lead removal of 5.7 mg/g was obtained at pH 5, biomass dosage of 0.5 g, initial lead concentration of 60 mg/L. The Langmuir and Freundlich models fit the experimental data (R2 > 0.99), while the kinetic data was best described using the pseudo second-order kinetic model (R2 > 0.99). FTIR spectra indicated that the metal removal takes place through binding to OH, C=O and P=O groups. Lead was efficiently recovered from biomass by mineral acids, while using CH3COOH and NaOH as eluents the biomass maintained high biosorption capacity during three cycles. This study demonstrates the potential of using Spirulina platensis as biosorbent to remove lead from industrial wastewater.
