METHYLENE BLUE DYE REMOVAL FROM WASTE WATER USINGACTIVATED LEMON PEELSonia Rani, Partibha, Anita Singh, Naresh Kumar and Sudesh Chaudhary
In this study we prepared activated carbons by chemical activation from lemon peel with (H2SO4) methodand to explore the adsorbent capacity for removing MB dye from waste water. SEM and FTIR techniqueswere used to study the adsorbent characteristics. The experimental data was used to study the effect ofvarious parameters the initial ion concentration, pH, contact time and adsorbent dose of lemon peel basedactivated carbon. Various kinetic models and isotherm adsorption were used to demonstrate the adsorptionproper mechanism. Langmuir adsorption isotherm was found to have the maximum adsorption potentialof 300 mg/g.
