How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The effectiveness of the chlorination of seawater for an open intake reverse osmosis (RO) installation, by continuous chlorination (CC) or shock chlorination (SC), associated with two different pretreatment processes has been analyzed. Ultrafiltration membrane pretreatment and physicochemical pretreatment were evaluated, associated with CC (1 mg Cl...
In this study, the effect of Pb(II) in biosorption of Cu(II) by almond shell from a binary metal mixture was studied and compared with the single metal ion situation in a batch stirred system and in a continuous system. It was observed that copper biosorption yields and copper equilibrium uptakes were slightly reduced by the presence of lead. This...
Biosorption of Cu(II) by pinion shell (PS) was investigated in batch and packed-bed systems. The biosorbent was characterized by elemental analysis, potentiometric titrations, surface area and pore size distribution, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analyses. Potentiometric titrations and FTIR spectroscopy indicated the presence of functional...
Pine cone shell (PCS), a vegetable solid waste has been used as effective and efficient biosorbent for the removal of Cu(II) from aqueous solutions. The biosorbent was characterized by elemental analysis, potentiometric titrations, surface area and pore size distribution and FTIR analyses. Batch adsorption experiments were carried out as a function...
Olive stone (OS) and pine bark (PB) were used as effective biosorbents for the removal of Cu(II) from aqueous solutions. The biosorbents were characterized by elemental analysis, potentiometric titrations, surface area and pore size distribution and FTIR analyses. Batch adsorption experiments were carried out as a function of pH, particle size, bio...
This work examines the potential of almond shell for its use as biosorbent of copper present in aqueous solutions. First, a physical-chemical characterization of the solid was performed. It has been determined that the almond shell pores are mesopores, with an average pore width of 54.5 Å and the total number of active groups is 0.592 mmol/g being...
