Removal of Pb(ii) ion from aqueous solutions using soursop (annona muricata) leaf powder / Mohd Syokri Fabil

Fabil, Mohd Syokri (2017) Removal of Pb(ii) ion from aqueous solutions using soursop (annona muricata) leaf powder / Mohd Syokri Fabil. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


The potential of Annona muricata leaf powder as an adsorbent for the removal of Pb(II) in the aqueous solution was investigated. The Annona muricata leaf powder was characterized before the adsorption using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer and Thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA). The zero point charge for the adsorbent surface was determined and the data shows that the value for pHzpc is 6.3. The effect of pH, sorbent dosage, initial concentration and contact time were investigated. The maximum uptake of Pb(II) was at pH 6 with 64.57 mglg. The absorption equilibrium was established after 30 minutes. The adsoprtion of Pb(II) by Annona muricata leaf powder increased with its initial concentration. Pseudo-second order showed the best fitting with high correlation (R2 = 0.999). It was found that the adsorption fits well with Langmuir isotherm equation. The maximum adsorption capacity for Langmuir Isotherm was found at 192.31 mg/g. The study suggested that Annona muricata could be an efficient sorbent for Pb(II) removal.
