Authors: Mika Sillanpää Publisher: Elsevier Science Publication date: 2020 Publication language: Angielski Number of pages: 694 Publication formats: EAN: 9780128192177 ISBN: 9780128192177 Category: Chemical engineering Water purification & desalinization Microbiology (non-medical) Publisher's index: 9780128192177 Bibliographic note: -


Advanced Water Treatment: Adsorption discusses the application of adsorption in water purification. The book reviews research findings on the preparation of five different nano/microcellulose-based adsorbents, their characterization, the study of adsorption kinetics and isotherms, the determination of adsorption mechanisms, and an evaluation of adsorbents’ regeneration properties. The book describes modification microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), the use of succinic anhydride modified mercerized nanocellulose, and aminosilane and hydroxyapatite modified nanostructured MFC for the removal of heavy metals from aqueous solutions.

Final sections describe the use of aminosilane, epoxy and hydroxyapatite modified MFC as a promising alternative for H2S removal from aqueous solutions, along with new findings on the adsorption properties of carbonated hydroxyapatite modified MFC as multifunctional adsorbent for the removal of both cations and anions ions from water.

  • Includes the most recent research on advanced water treatment by adsorption
  • Provides the latest updates on novel absorbents for water purification
  • Describes REE removal using various absorbents
  • Covers a wide range of methods and their integration
