Metal oxides as adsorbent for lead ion


Author(s): Arunkumar Lagashetty

Abstract: Oxide materials specially metal oxide nanomaterials exhibits good adsorbent property which develops materials science and technology at nano level. The better adsorbent property for the oxide nanomaterials is due to the particle size. The decrease in particle size of the metal oxide particles develops new properties and applications due to variation of surface morphology. Copper oxide and zinc oxide was synthesized by microwave firing through the thermal decomposition of copper carboxylate and nickel carboxylate precursors employing polyvinyl alcohol as an efficient fuel. The prepared oxide materials are studied for its adsorbent behavior for lead ions by dynamic method. Lead adsorbed oxide materials is characterized for its structure by employing powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern, morphology by Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) tool and bonding by Fourier Transform infrared (FTIR) tools. Solution conductivity and Atomic absorption study for lead eluent is studied.
