Studying Effect of Modifying Nano-Mineral Adsorbents on Efficiency of Dye Removal from Industrial Effluents

A. Agah; N. Falahati

Volume 12, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 219-233


  In this research work, the potential capability of nano-clay and tonsil, as low-cost and domestic adsorbents, for the elimination of a cationic dye, (CR18) from contaminated water is investigated. The surface properties of the adsorbents are studied by means of the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) ...  Read More

K. Seifpanahi Shabani; B. Abedi-Orang

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 1079-1093


  In this work, three types of natural clays including kaolinite, montmorillonite, and illite with different molecular structures, as adsorbents, are selected for the removal of methylene blue dye, and their performance is investigated. Also the optimization and the analysis of the dye adsorption mechanism ...  Read More

Investigation of Mechanism of Adsorption of Xanthate and Hydroxamate on Malachite

M. Mohammadkhani; M. Abdollahy; M. R. Khalesi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 921-933


  Copper oxide minerals such as malachite do not respond well to the traditional copper sulfide collectors, and require alternative flotation schemes. In many copper ore mines, significant copper oxide minerals, especially malachite, are associated with sulfide minerals. Considering that xanthates are ...  Read More

Comparative and Competitive Study of LDH/Diatomite and Chitosan/Diatomite for Adsorptive Removal of Chloride Ion from Aqueous Solution

F. Sadough Abbasian; B. Rezai; A. R. Azadmehr; H. Hamidian

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 261-279


  In this work, two clay-based composites are prepared for the adsorptive removal of the chloride ions from aqueous solutions. These composites are characterized through Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction analysis. ...  Read More

Pre-treatment of toxic element and cationic dye onto natural biomass: characterization and optimization

F. Mohajer-Moghari; K. Seifpanahi Shabani; M. Karamouzian

Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2019, , Pages 649-658


  This researchdescribe wastewater pre-treatment that contaminated with Methylene Blue dye (MB) and Ni(II) ion by Athelia Bombacina fungus dead biomass (ABFDB). Researches finding on ABFDB characterization by SEM, XRD, CHNS and FT-IR analysis show that ABFDB can be used as efficient sorbent, because ABFDB ...  Read More

Evaluating performance of natural sepiolite and zeolite nanoparticles for nickel, antimony, and arsenic removal from synthetic wastewater

R. Dabiri; E. Amiri Shiraz

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 1049-1064


  This paper describes a preliminary study of the adsorption of toxic elements from synthetic wastewater in a batch mode. Clay minerals have been highly considered as inexpensive available adsorbents that adapt with the environment due to a special level and a high potential of adsorption. In the present ...  Read More

Mineral Processing
An innovative application of (NiXZnX–X Fe2O4) Mineral nanoparticles for adsorption of Malachite green dye from wastewater effluents

M. R. Heydartaemeh

Volume 9, Issue 1 , January 2018, , Pages 143-152


  In this research work, the Ni-Zn Ferrite Mineral Nanoparticles (NZFMN), as a novel nanoadsorbent, was used for the removal of the Green Malachite (GM) dye from aqueous solutions by in a batch and fixed bed column. Firstly, the NZFMN adsorption properties were investigated. The effects of the process ...  Read More

Magnetic Nano mineral and acid mine drainage interaction: An experimental study

K. Seifpanahi Shabani; A. Vaezian

Volume 8, Issue 3 , July 2017, , Pages 447-453


  In the environment, two main sources of heavy metals are natural backgrounds derived from parent rocks and anthropogenic contamination including mineral industrial wastes, tailing damps of sulfide mines, agrochemicals, and other outputs of industrial activities and factories. In this work, the physico-chemical ...  Read More
