ADSORPTION OF IRON FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTION USING SMALL GOOSEBERRY SEEDS AS ADSORBENT

G. ANUSHA AND S.M. SUNEETH KUMAR

Abstract

The presence of iron is probably the most common water problem faced by consumers and water treatment professionals. Iron may cause conjunctivitis, choroiditis, and retinitis if it contacts and remains in the tissues. Hence to remove iron from water among the methods available, adsorption has gained popularity due to several advantages. A batch study adsorption has been conducted by adsorption process using activated carbon prepared from gooseberry seeds as adsorbent and the removal efficiency are determined by optimizing the parameters such as dosage, time, pH and concentration. The maximum removal efficiency was found to be more than 89.5%.This experimental study proves to be an economical method of iron removal since the developed product is a waste product. Even small industries with iron bound wastewater can adopt this method of treatment and hence prevent the polluted water entering the stream
