Application of Irradiation Process for Surface Grafting and Copper Removal
In this research, the acrylic acid (AAc) was grafted onto polypropylene (PP) fabrics with the gamma-ray (γ-ray) preirradiation. The effect of acrylic acid concentration, grafting time, grafting temperature were conducted to obtain the optimum carboxyl adsorber manufacturing conditions. Furthermore, the effectiveness of carboxyl adsorber for removal heavy metal ions using various operating conditions such as reaction time, pH and metal/carboxyl adsorber molar ratio was also evaluated in this research.
