0.20 g of adsorbent was added to 20 mL of 50 mg/L dye solution and Vortex at 150 rpm for various time intervals at 5, 10, 15, 30, 60, minutes. The above steps were repeated using dye concentrations of 100, 150 and 200 mg/L dye solutions. Adsorbent dosage is an important parameter because it determines the capacity of adsorbent for a given initial concentration of dye molecules. Then their % absorbance’s were calculated by spectrophotometer (λmax=410) and thus amount adsorbed were calculated. Data obtained from the experiments with 0.20 adsorbent concentrations are presented in Fig. 4.1.1 Initial conc. of methyl red dye 25 & 50 mg/l are 100 absorbed within 60 min. The removal efficiency of 75 mg/l conc.is 80% within 60 min.100 & 200 mg/l dye …show more content…
1. Methyl Red removal with 0.2 g/L Fe Nanoparticle at different contact time

4.1.2 Unit Removal Capacity (URC) at different concentrations of Methyl Red
Unit removal capacity is the amount of dye removed per unit weight of iron dosage.The decolorization efficiency (η%) of MO and the unit removal capacity (mg/g) were calculated using the following URC= C0-Ce/m

Where C0 and Ce are the initial and equilibrium MO concentrations (mg/L) in the solution respectively, m is the amount of nZVI/BC (g/L).
The figure showing that the Methyl Red concentration increases the unit removal capacity also increases. As the concentration of dye dosages increase the removal efficiency decrease. Max. URC is decolorized at the 200 mg/l dye concentration i.e. 1000 mg/g is totally degraded. Fig4.2. Removal efficiency (RE) and Unit Removal Capacity (URC) at different concentrations of Methyl

200 mg/L and nZVI conc. (0.20 g/L) and initial pH of the conical flask was measured. The pH of the dye solutions were adjusted with dilute HCl (0.1N) or KOH (0.1N) solution by using a pHmeter with pH of solutions being 2,4, 6,8, 10,12 .The adsorption of MR dye on nZVI was studied in a pH range of 2–12. Methyl red is slightly acidic pH ranges from 4.5- 6.5. Fig. 4.3 shows the obtained results. The figure indicates that, for MR, the adsorption is strong in acidic medium. As the pH increase, the adsorption capacity for nZVI decreases. For MR, the adsorption is high in acidic medium and increases with the increase in solution pH. This result may be due to change in surface charge of both the dyes molecules and functional groups of adsorbent. More absorption capacity is well worked on 4 & 6 pH. As the pH is increases, however, the overall surface charge on the cells will become positive, which will promote reaction with Methyl Red as an anionic dye through electrostatic forces of attraction. At pH 2 ,the removal capacity is low due the structure of methyl red and iron particles. It has greater tendency to attract them and corroision starts

    3.2 Effects of particle size The particle size of the catalyst was highly influenced on the reaction rate, when the particle size of the catalyst was decreased, therefore their surface areas was increased and the ratio of catalyst surface and reactant volume was playing a crucial role for controlling the reaction kinetics. The reaction was takes place on the surface of a substance, increasing the surface area should increases the quantity of the substance that is available to react, and will thus increase the rate of the reaction as well. The size and shape of the CuMnOx catalyst particles was a transaction between the minimize pore diffusion effects in the catalyst particles. The particle size provides information about the reaction behavior…

    This can also be seen by the value of the rate constants where k1 k2. Additionally the process of phenol decomposition by direct ozonation is different than that of indirect ozonation. Degradation of phenol by OH radicals favors the formation of aromatic by products, following the formation of organic acids and thereafter partial mineralization [26]. Because the OH radical is a powerful and unselective oxidant, raising the initial Ph values increased TOC removals. The alkaline environment presented a higher degradation rate for the whole duration of 80 minutes than that of the initial pH (pH8.9) and acidic pH (pH4).…

    The efficiency of photodegradation of aqueous CR was found to be higher in the acidic medium particularly at pH 4 (~99.7%) because Co/Ti LDH surface was highly positive at this pH, indicated by the zeta potential results, creating strong electrostatic interaction with the negatively charged CR ions. At pH > pHzpc, the LDH surface is negatively charged, repelling the dye anions…

    4.5: Effect of feed flow rate (Fgr) on yield. Gas oil – y1 (wt %), gasoline – y2 (wt %), light gases – y3 (wt %) and coke - y4 (wt %). Operating Conditions: Tf = 600K; Trg = 960K; Fgr = 33.9Kg/s: 5: 67.8Kg/s; Frc = 480Kg/s. 4.2.5 Effect of Catalyst flow rate (Frc) on product distribution Increase in the catalyst flow rate means the catalyst spends less time in the riser, reduction in deactivation of catalyst, catalyst average activity in the riser will be higher and the cracking reactions will be more intensive. These will lead to an increase in the conversions of gas oil and subsequent increase in the yield of the products.…

    caudatum was measured according to the method proposed by Benzie and Strain. FRAP reagent was prepared by mixing in 25 mL acetate buffer (30 mM; pH 3.6), 2.5 mL TPTZ solution (10 mM) and 2.5 mL ferric chloride solution (20 mM). The mixture was incubated for 15 min at 37 °C before use. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) was employed as a standard in this assay, and its calibration curve was obtained by using its concentrations ranging from 50 mg/L to 500 mg/L in water. To 2.85 mL FRAP reagent in a test tube, 150 μL plant sample (0.1 mg/mL, in methanol) or standard was added.…

    Afterwards AlCl3 dissolves as [AlCl4]- ions at around the pitting potential [23, 24]. In case of Alloy 2, the quick rise in current density in the anodic branch suggested that the pitting potential, Ep, was near-by Ecorr indicating the higher activity of the Alloy 2 compared to Alloy 1 and Al. The important point is that the addition of Ga and Pb to Alloy 2 shifts the polarization…

    The adsorption efficiency reached a maximum at ca 0.03 M (sample S3) and after that, it decreases. This was probably as a result of the increase in the formation of larger particles of AgNPs as the [Ag] increased (Sinha et al., 2015; Venkatesham et al., 2014). Our findings appear to be well supported by the increase in the [Ag], results in an increase in the density of nuclei that leads to high collision possibility between nuclei. Hence, the growth rate of AgNPs is enhanced and therefore an increase of particle size is obtained. It is reasonable to state that the binding of the dye molecules to the AgNPs/f-silica depends on the surface area available for interaction.…

    The unique composition and purity of as-deposited SnS2 thin films prepared with different precursor solution volumes from 5 ml to 25ml were determined by EDX analysis as shown in fig 5, which brought out the presence of Tin and Sulfur as elementary components. Two different peaks were observed in the spectrums from fig 5 relevant to the tin and sulfur. The EDX spectra show that the weight percentage for the film prepared at the precursor solution volume of 5 ml is 36.8% and 63.2%, which is approximately equal to their formal stoichiometry. The Atomic percentage of sulfur in SnS2 thin films increases with an increase in precursor solution volumes from 5 to 20 ml. The atomic percentage of tin and sulfur was observed in the precursor solution…
