    This paper presents the findings of a study on adsorption of poly chlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) nano-alumina. PCBs are of significant concern due their high toxicity and long environmental half-lives. Experiments were conducted using batch adsorption procedures at different PCBs concentrations, from 10 to 60 mg/L. The amounts of nano-alumina used were 0.25%, 0.50%, 0.75%, 1%, 2% and 10%. The adsorption of PCBs solution onto the nano-alumina was characterized by an initial rapid adsorption which eventually became constant within 17 hours. Results of this study indicated that nano-alumina was a good adsorbent material for PCB in this study. While at 10% of nano-alumina 54% PCB were removed by nano-alumina. The effect of pH and temperature were also investigated. The Freundlich isotherm adsorption and Langmuir isotherm adsorption were used to analysis the result of the study. .. Read More»
