Removal of Cd(II) from Aqueous Solution by Electrospun Nylon 6 Nanofibrous Nonwoven Containing Attapulgite
The attapulgite powders modified by silicane coupling agent are loaded onto the surface of nylon 6 nanofibers by immersing the nylon 6 electrospun fiber nonwoven in a bath containing modified attapulgite dispersion under ultrasonicating. The nylon6 nanofibrous nonwoven containing attapulgite nano particles was explored as “nano adsorbent” to remove Cd (II) ions from Cd (II) aqueous solution. The effects of various parameters on adsorption properties, such as contact time, pH values of Cd (II) solution and initial Cd (II) concentration were investigated.
