Effect of Preparation Technique on Methyl Orange Sorption Behavior of Exfoliated Graphite

Abstract:

Article Preview

Three natural graphite flakes (35, 50 and 80 mesh) were used as raw material. Exfoliated graphite (EG) was prepared by rapidly heating expandable graphite to 1000 °C in a muffle and by irradiating it in a microwave oven with a power of 280 W for 40 s, respectively. The EG samples were used for removing methyl orange (MO) from aqueous solution. The effect of preparation technique of EG (particle size of natural graphite and exfoliation method of expandable graphite) on MO removal properties was investigated, and a higher removal rate was achieved.
