Adsorption of Cu2+ and Ni2+ by oxalic acid-crosslinked chitosan-modified montmorillonite

研究成果: Article査読


This study undertook the testing of Cu2+ and Ni2+ adsorption using synthesized oxalic acid-crosslinked chitosan (CTS)-modified montmorillonite (MMT), as well as a kinetic analysis and equilibrium analysis. We believe that our study makes a significant contribution to the literature because we showed that the interlayer distance of untreated MMT was increased from 1.23 to 2.05–2.21 nm, and thus verified the intercalation of CTS into the MMT interlayer. The maximum adsorption of Cu2+, as calculated using the Langmuir equation, was significantly higher for oxalic acid-crosslinked CTS-modified MMT, relative to untreated MMT or the non-crosslinked CTS-modified-MMT. The oxalic acid-crosslinked CTS-modified MMT could also take up more Cu2+ than Ni2+ from a solution containing a mixture of Cu2+-Ni2+. The selective adsorption of oxalic acid-crosslinked CTS-modified-MMT (i.e. Ni2+ < Cu2+) is governed by the selective adsorption of CTS and the oxalic acid. This reveals the effect of the complex formation with CTS and oxalic acid.
