Paper Title:
Synthesis of NH2-Functionalized Nano-Fe3O4 Magnetic Polymer Adsorbent and its Application for the Removal of Cr (VI) from Industrial Wastewater
  Abstract

In this study, a novel NH2-functionalized nano-sized magnetic polymer (TEPA-NMP) adsorbent coupling with tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) had been prepared. Its application for the removal of Cr(VI) from industrial wastewater was investigated. Batch adsorption studies were carried out to evaluate the effects of pH value, initial concentration, adsorption isotherm, adsorption kinetics, and desorption characters etc. The adsorption of Cr(VI) reached equilibrium rapidly within 30 mins. The adsorption efficiency of the TEPA-NMP on Cr(VI) was dependent on pH value and the initial Cr(VI) concentration. The adsorption efficiency of Cr(VI) decreased with the increasing of the initial Cr(VI) concentration and pH value. The adsorption data were well fitted with the Langmuir isotherm. The maximum adsorption capacity calculated from the Langmuir isotherm was 370.4 mg/g at temperature of 35 °C and pH of 2.0. Regeneration studies indicated that the adsorbent could be reused for 8 times with only 3.4 % lost of adsorption efficiency. The adsorption mechanism study results suggested that the adsorption of Cr(VI) could be related with electrostatic attraction, ion exchange and coordination interactions.
