The marine macroalga Cystoseira baccata as biosorbent for cadmium(II) and lead(II) removal: kinetic and equilibrium studies
[Abstract] This work reports kinetic and equilibrium studies of cadmium(II) and lead(II) adsorption by the brown seaweed Cystoseira baccata. Kinetic experiments demonstrated rapid metal uptake. Kinetic data were satisfactorily ...
Biosorption of Cadmium by Biomass of Brown Marine Macroalgae
[Abstrac] Five different brown seaweeds, Bifurcaria bifurcata, Saccorhiza polyschides, Ascophyllum nodosum, Laminaria ochroleuca and Pelvetia caniculata were studied for their ability to remove cadmium from aqueous solution. ...
Removal of Inorganic Mercury From Aqueous Solutions by Biomass of the Marine Macroalga Cystoseira Baccata
[Abstract] The ability of Cystoseira baccata algal biomass to remove Hg(II) from aqueous solutions is investigated. The mercury biosorption process is studied through batch experiments at 25ºC with regard to the influence ...
