ABSTRACT In this study, poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAA/HCl) was cross-linked with fermentation bacterial waste (Escherichia coli) in order to introduce a large amount of amine groups as binding sites for potassium hexachloroplatinate(IV), as a model anionic pollutant. The sorption performance of PAA/HCl-modified E. coli was greatly affected by the dosages of PAA/HCl and crosslinker (epichlorohydrin, ECH), and by the pH of the modification reaction medium. These factors were optimized through the response surface methodology (RSM). A three-level factorial Box-Behnken design was performed, and a second-order polynomial model was successfully used to describe the effects of PAA/HCl, ECH and the pH on the Pt(IV) uptake (R(2) = 0.988). The optimal conditions that were obtained from the RSM were 0.49 g of PAA/HCl, 0.05 mL of ECH and pH 10.02, with 1.0 g of dried E. coli biomass. The biosorption isotherm and kinetics studies were carried out in order to evaluate the sorption potential of the PAA/HCl-modified E. coli that was prepared under the optimized conditions. The sorption performance of the developed bacterial biosorbent was 4.36 times greater than that of the raw E. coli. Desorption was carried out using 0.05 M acidified thiourea and the biosorbent was successfully regenerated and reused up to four cycles. Therefore, this simple and cost-effective method suggested here is a useful modification tool for the development of high performance biosorbents for the recovery of anionic precious metals.

    ABSTRACT: Biosorption is a promising technology not only for the removal of heavy metals and dyes but also for the recovery of precious metals (PMs) from solution phases. The biosorptive recovery of PMs from waste solutions and secondary resources is recently getting paid attractive attention because their price is increasing or fluctuating, their available deposit is limited and maldistributed, and high-tech industries need more consumption of PMs. The biosorbents for recovery of PMs require specifications which differ from those for the treatment of wastewaters containing heavy metals and dyes. In this review, the previous works on biosorbents and biosorption for recovery of PMs were summarized. Especially, we discuss and suggest the required specifications of biosorbents for recovery of PMs and strategies to give the required properties to the biosorbents. We believe this review will provide useful information to scientists and engineers and hope to give insights into this research frontier.
