Study of metal content by absorption spectroscopy
Author(s): Momin Shaziya Mohammed Irfan and Pillai Pramoda Sasidharan
Abstract: Fast progress in the textile dyeing industry and direct discharge of the effluents in to sewage connections leads to pollution masses on the water reservoir. This study was carried out to examine the water quality of dyeing industry effluents of Bhiwandi city. The analyses of effluents have been carried out to find out the concentration of heavy metals such as Cadmium and Lead and to determine what toxic effects it could cause if the concentration of these heavy metals goes high. Detection of heavy metals has been carried out by spectroscopic technique by measurement of absorption of coloured complexes. The amount of cadmium and lead are found to be greater than the standard values provided by standard body. It is therefore suggested that the careless release of the dyeing effluents should be discouraged and suitable managing systems should be in use to reduce the water pollution for saving the environment.
