Preparation and Characterization of Modified Bamboo-Charcoal by Ferric Sulfate Dipping and Microware Radiation
Modified bamboo-charcoal (MBC) was prepared by Ferric sulfate dipping and microwave radiation with 20～30 mesh bamboo-charcoal (BC) pretreated by water boiling as the support. The original and modified BC were characterized by SEM, FTIR, XRD, BET and BJH. Fluoride removal from simulated drinking water containing fluoride was probed into with MBC. The results indicated that MBC took on minor average pore diameter (1.172nm), major microspores and greater specific surface area (99.891 m2/g). Loaded iron combined with BC by bonds from BC such as H-O-H bond, C-O bond and O-H bond. The increase of fluoride removal after BC being modified suggests that MBC is a more potential defluorinate agent.
