ULTRASOUND PROMOTED EXPULSION OF LEAD IONS FROM WASTEWATER USING IONIC LIQUID MODIFIED ALUMINIUM ISOPROPOXIDEA. Kaur, A. Pathak and B. Kaur
In the present investigation Methyltrioctylammonium Chloride modified Aluminium isopropoxide was prepared under ultrasonicator. The IL-Aluminium isopropoxide was characterized using FTIR and X-ray diffractometer (XRD). The Prepared IL-Aluminium isopropoxide was tested for the adsorption of Pb2+ from aqueous solution and isotherms were determined. The Pb2+ adsorption performance of the prepared samples was studied by Atomic Adsorption Spectroscopy (AAS) method. Adsorption of Pb2+ on the chemically modified Aluminium isopropoxide was correlated well with the Langmuir model. Correlation coefficients (R2) of Langmuir adsorption isotherms was 0.9994. Efficient synthesis strategy and high adsorption efficiency of IL-Aluminium isopropoxide showed a best ability to remove Pb2+ metal ions from water.
