Removal of dyes from the industrial discharge water is an important issue for safety of the environment. In this study, magnetic (magnetite, Fe3O4) nanoparticles were coated with chitosan (CS) and the efficiency of these chitosan coated magnetic nanoparticles (Fe3O4-CS) for the adsorption of a reactive textile dye (Reactive Yellow 145, RY145) was examined first time in literature. TEM, XRD, and EPR results revealed that the thickness of the coat was about 25 nm, no phase change in the spinel structure of magnetic particles existed after coating, and particles had paramagnetic property, respectively. Adsorption of RY145 on Fe3O4-CS nanoparticles occurs according to Langmuir model in the temperature range 25 degrees C-45 degrees C with a maximum adsorption capacity of 47.62 mg g(-1) at 25 degrees C, in aqueous media. Thermodynamic parameters demonstrated that the adsorption process was endothermic and spontaneous, and the maximum desorption of the dye was 80% over a single adsorption/desorption cycle. In this study, the high efficiency of the CS coated magnetic nanoparticles in the adsorption and removal of reactive dyes from water was shown on model RY145. This type of nanoparticles can be good candidates in industrial applications for the decolorization of waste waters. (C) 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2012


Environmental Applications of Natural Zeolites
Kazemian, Hossein; Gedik, Kadir; İmamoğlu, İpek (2012-01-01)
Environmental pollution particularly at very low concentrations is very difficult to remove from contaminated media. Adsorption by means of relatively inexpensive natural adsorbents such as zeolites can be considered as a cost effective alternative treatment of such contaminated streams. The unique chemical and structural characteristics of natural zeolites made them potential materials for a multitude of environmental applications where materials are needed for effective binding, adsorbing, and filtering. ...
Dynamic analysis of sorption of Methylene Blue dye on granular and powdered activated carbon
YENER, JÜLİDE; KOPAÇ, TÜRKAN; DOĞU, GÜLŞEN; Doğu, Timur (2008-11-01)
Removal of dyes and pigments from wastewaters of dying and printing industries is a major environmental issue. Sorption rate and equilibrium parameters of Methylene Blue on granular and powdered activated carbons were investigated in a batch adsorber. Due to the significance of pore diffusion resistance and partial closure of pore mouths by dissociatively chemisorbed dyes, both sorption rate and sorption capacity values evaluated for granular Carbon were lower than the corresponding values for powdered acti...
Transition Metal Chelated Biopolymer Coated Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles as Highly Efficient, Stable, and Recyclable Nanocatalysts for Catalytic Bleaching
Yurdakul, Merve; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Yilmaz, M. Deniz (2019-02-21)
The role of catalysts in the development of improved bleaching methods is of paramount scientific and industrial importance in the bleaching of raw cotton and laundry stains. Despite tremendous efforts, developing novel earth abundant metal nanocatalysts with high activity and stability remains a great challenge. Here, we demonstrate the successful formation of earth abundant transition metal-chelated layer-by-layer hyaluronic acid/chitosan polyelectrolyte-coated mesoporous silica nanoparticles (Metal@PEM-M...
Triclosan removal by NF from a real drinking water source - Effect of natural organic matter
OGUTVERİCİ, Abdullah; Yılmaz, Levent; Yetiş, Ülkü; Dilek, Filiz Bengü (2016-01-01)
Nanofiltration (NF) is known as a very effective technology in the removal of micropollutants from surface water for drinking water purposes. In this study, NF of triclosan (TCS) which is a commonly used biocide in many different domestic and industrial applications was investigated in relation to its interaction with natural organic matter (NOM). A laboratory scale cross-flow device was operated in total recycle mode using a thin-film composite membrane with a real surface water. The effect of NOM content ...
Color Removal with Natural Materials for Reuse of Wastewater in Textile Industry
Atımtay, Aysel (2010-09-15)
The water consumption in textile industry, especially in dyeing and washing processes is too high. Therefore, large amount of wastewater is produced and discharged to the receiving environment during textile production process. Discharge of colored effluents without decoloration originated from textile industries may cause serious problems in the receiving environments. Besides water resources are limited. The textile industry should look for recycling and reusing this water. The objective of this chapter i...
