Kinetic Performance of Aluminum and Iron Oxides in the Removal of Arsenate from Aqueous Environment

E. Bilgin Simsek and U. Beker
Abstract—Arsenate (As(V)) adsorption from aqueous solution onto clinoptilolite incorporating iron or aluminum oxides was investigated. The modified samples were characterized by nitrogen adsorption isotherms, TEM-EDX analysis. Kinetic models were applied to describe As(V) adsorption on each modified clinoptilolite samples. The kinetic data, explained best by the pseudo-second-order model by good regression coefficients.

Index Terms—Arsenic, adsorption kinetics, metal oxides.
