Biosorption of Cr(VI) by Parthenium hysterophorus biomass

Durga Prasad pandey

Abstract: Biosorption of heavy metals is a promising technology that involves the removal of toxic metals from waste water. The present study aims to screen the Parthenium hysterophorus for its potential biosorption of Chromuim (VI). The biosorption equilibrium data were well fitted by the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The biosorption kinetics showed that the equilibrium was reached within 10 min. The maximum removal of Cr (VI) by Parthenium hysterophorus was estimated to be 71% in 50 mg/l of Cr(VI). In conclusion, Parthenium hysterophorus is proposed as an excellent biosorbent with potentially important applications in removal of heavy metals pollutants from wastewaters.
