Adorption and Kinetics Studies of Baritite on Cr (VI) from Aqueous Solutions


Article Preview

Among the investigated clays and minerals (kaolinite, natural zeolite, manual zeolite, bentonite, sepiolite, sepiolite amianthus, tremolite amianthus, vermiculite and baritite), the baritite clay was selected as the optimal adsorbent for aqueous Cr (VI). The Cr (VI) adsorption capacity on baritite clay reached as high as 39.01 mg∙g−1 at 20°C. Then the adsorption kinetics of Cr (VI) by the baritite clay were investigated in details. Results showed that the pseudo-second-order model was a suitable description for the adsorption kinetics and fitted well with the experimental data.
