Abstract: In this study, adsorption of binary metal (Ni(II) and Pb(II)) ions from aqueous solution by using natural (NC), acid-modified (AC) and base-modified (BC) clinoptilolite were investigated to determine the effects of adsorbent dosage, metal solution’s pH and initial metal solution concentration. From the adsorption studies, the optimum dosage of adsorbent was found to be 2.0g for all adsorbents (NC, AC and BC) specifically for removal of Pb(II). In contrast, optimum dosage of for removal of Ni(II) was found to be 2.0g for NC and 4.0g for both AC and BC, respectively. The average pH for Ni(II) and Pb(II) ion solutions were 6. It was further observed that, the percentage removal of Ni(II) was largely influenced by the presence of lead due to the preference of Pb2+ ions by the natural and modified clinoptilolites.

Abstract: Biosorption process is considered as economical treatment to remove metal from the aqueous solution compared to other established methods. In this study, Saccharomyces cerevisiae was used as biosorbent and subject to immobilization process which consists of ethanol treatment for the removal of binary metals, lead (II) and nickel (II) from aqueous solution. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize effective parameters condition and the interaction of two or more parameters in order to obtain high removal of the binary metals. The parameters that have been studied were initial concentration of binary metals solution (10 - 60 mg/L), biosorbent dosage (0.2 - 1.0 g), pH (pH 2 - pH 6) and contact time (30 - 360 minutes) towards lead (II) and nickel (II) ions removal. Based on analysis of variance (ANOVA), biosorbent dosage, solution pH and contact time factor were found significant for both responses. Through optimization procedure, the optimum condition for lead (II) and nickel (II) ions removal were obtained at initial concentration of 10.0 mg/L, biosorbent dosage of 1.0 g, solution pH of pH 6, and contact time of 360.00 minutes, which resulted in 95.08 % and 21.09 % removal of lead (II) and nickel (II) ions respectively.
