Curcuminoids− a potent sorbent for the removal of lead (II) ions from aqueous solution
Author(s): P Venugopalan, NU Aswathy Unnikrishnan
Abstract: The adsorption behaviour of turmeric with respect to Pb2+ has been studied in order to consider its application to the removal of Pb2+ from lead contaminated water samples. The batch method was employed and adsorption parameters were determined using both Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms. The results showed that turmeric is a potent adsorbent to remove lead (II) species from lead contaminated water samples.
