Use of a novel low-cost adsorbent PANI@ Clay composite to effectively remove OG dye from wastewater: Insights from isotherm kinetic and thermodynamic modeling, investigation …

The purpose of this research was to determine if a natural clay treated with Polyaniline (PANI) might be used to effectively and affordably remove of anionic dyes from aqueous solutions, with a focus on Orange G dye (OG). After combining PANI with natural clay. We created a Polyaniline-clay composite after analyzing it with FTIR, XRD, SEM and EDS of the (PANI@Clay). Using batch adsorption tests, we compared the performance of PANI@Clay and raw clay at removing OG from aqueous solutions as a function of contact duration (10–360 min), initial concentration (50–500 mg/L), temperature (293–318 K), and pH (2–12). Results showed that PANI@Clay had a maximum equilibrium adsorption capacity of 67.35 mg/g, while raw-clay only managed 47.62 mg/g. Pseudo second-order and Langmuir models were both good fits for the kinetic behavior and the isotherms. According to the Gibbs energy and other …

A Simple Approach to Prepare a C3N4/MoO3 Heterojunction with Improved Photocatalytic Performance for the Degradation of Methylparaben

The adequate optical properties, low cost, and thermal stability of graphitic carbon nitride and molybdenum oxide make them both promising materials for photocatalytic applications. However, they both suffer from strong recombination of their photogenerated charge carriers. Therefore, searching for strategies that enable an efficient charge carrier separation is desirable for improving the photocatalytic performance of both semiconductors. In this work, we have synthesized a g-C3N4/MoO3 heterojunction by a facile solid dispersion approach to the pristine semiconductors that allows a uniform dispersion of the two phases in the heterojunction. The resulting hybrid photocatalyst exhibits light absorption features similar to pristine g-C3N4 and presents an improved separation of the photogenerated charge carriers, likely through a Z-scheme between both semiconductor phases, as inferred by photoelectrochemical measurements. As a result, the g-C3N4/MoO3 heterojunction showed better photocatalytic activity than the individual semiconductors and good cycling stability for the degradation of methylparaben and its reaction intermediates. We drew these conclusions based on total organic carbon (TOC) measurements.

Ba3(PO4)2 Photocatalyst for Efficient Photocatalytic Application

Barium phosphate (Ba3(PO4)2) is a class of material that has attracted significant attention thanks to its chemical stability and versatility. However, the use of Ba3(PO4)2 as a photocatalyst is scarcely reported, and its use as a photocatalyst has yet to be reported. Herein, Ba3(PO4)2 nanoflakes synthesis is optimized using sol‐gel and hydrothermal methods. The as‐prepared Ba3(PO4)2 powders are investigated using physicochemical characterizations, including XRD, SEM, EDX, FTIR, DRS, J–t, LSV, Mott‐Schottky, and EIS. In addition, DFT calculations are performed to investigate the band structure. The oxidation capability of the photocatalysts is investigated depending on the synthesis method using rhodamine B (RhB) as a pollutant model. Both Ba3(PO4)2 samples prepared by the sol‐gel and hydrothermal methods display high RhB photodegradation of 79% and 68%, respectively. The Ba3(PO4)2 obtained …

Use of oak acorns adsorbent and response surface methodology for removal of crystal violet from aqueous solution

This study investigates the potential use of oak acorn pericarp powder as an effective adsorbent for removing crystal violet from aqueous solutions under citric acid activation. Various analytical techniques, including FTIR, EDS, and SEM, were used to examine the characteristics of the adsorbent obtained. Throughout the experiments, parameters such as adsorbent quantity, solution pH, and initial dye concentration were meticulously taken into account. To optimise this removal process, a customised experimental approach based on response surface methodology (RSM) was adopted, involving the performance of 20 series of experiments to assess the influence of key variables, including adsorbent dose (A), pH (B), and initial dye concentration (C), as well as their interactions. Statistical analysis reveals the high significance of the elimination model, supported by an extremely low probability value (p < 0.0001 …

Photocatalyst for Efficient Photocatalytic Application

Due to the rapid increase in the global population and industrial activities, the issue of air and water pollution has become a significant concern affecting human health.[1] Among the various pollutants, organic textile dyes, including Rhodamine B (RhB) dye, are particularly common in wastewater from diverse industrial sources, posing a significant threat to aquatic life and human health.[2] These dyes are often toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic, emphasizing the urgent need for effective methods to remove them from wastewater. Textile waste can be treated through various traditional methods, including adsorption, filtration, reverse osmosis, chemical precipitation, solvent extraction, ion exchange, and, as well as bio-/chemical degradation.[3–8] However, these methods are not highly efficient and often result in secondary pollution by

Arginine-polyaniline@g-C3N4 for outstanding retention of Orange G dye from water

An eco-friendly material was synthesized through interfacial polymerization of aniline on particles of g-C3N4 with arginine, resulting in Arg-PANI@g-C3N4 composite. The as-synthesized composite was characterized by the Brunauer, Emmett, and Teller (BET) surface area, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The adsorption capability of as-synthesized composite towards Orange G (OG) dye has been evaluated under several experimental conditions, such as the adsorbent dosage, initial dye concentration, contact time under agitation, pH of dye solution and temperature. Thermodynamics parameters such as free energy (ΔG°), entropy (ΔS°), and enthalpy (ΔH°) were also calculated and suggested that the adsorption process is spontaneous and endothermic in nature. The kinetics data …

Facile elaboration of arginine-functionalized PANI@ graphitic carbon nitride for efficient removal of hexavalent chromium

In this current study, an arginine-functionalized polyaniline@g-C3N4 composite was designed by an interfacial polymerization reaction; hence this composite has been applied as adsorbent material for the adsorption of hexavalent chromium Cr(VI) ions from solution. The as-developed composite's surface features were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), porosity and point of zero charge (PZC). Batch experiments were employed to study the adsorbent dosage, initial Cr(VI) concentration, contact time, pH's solution and temperature effects. The results showed that the highest adsorption capacity was obtained to be 204.04 mg.g−1 at pH = 2. The experimental data showed that the adsorption of Cr(VI) on Arg-functionalized PANI@g-C3N4 were well correlate with the pseudo-second order …

Optimizing removal of chromium (VI) ions from water by coagulation process using central composite design: Effectiveness of grape seed as a green coagulant

In the past decades, considerable work has been devoted to remove chromium (VI) ions from the aqueous environment, owning to their serious health concerns to humans and the aquatic ecosystem. Recently, natural coagulants have attracted increasing attention from researchers due to their great ability to remove pollutants from industrial wastewater. In the present study, we focused on the utilization of a grape seed powder (GSP) biocoagulant as low-cost and eco-friendly material for the effective removal of hexavalent chromium, Cr(VI) ions from synthetic wastewater using coagulation process. The GSP was characterized using familiar techniques like phytochemical analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with EDS mapping, microelectrophoresis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The impacts of some independent parameters such as …
