RGO/CNF/PANI AS AN EFFECTIVE ADSORBENT FOR THE ADSORPTION OF URANIUM FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTION

Tran Quang Dat

Abstract


In this paper, we present a recent study in the adsorption of uranium from an aquatic environment by reduced graphene oxide - Cu0.5Ni0.5Fe2O4 ferrite – polyaniline (RGO/CNF/PANI) composite. Uranium concentration was carried out by batch techniques. The effect of pH, contact time, concentration of equilibrium state and reusability on uranium adsorption capacity have been studied. The adsorption process was accomplished within 240 min and could be well described by the pseudo-second-order model. The adsorption isotherm agrees well with the Langmuir model, having a maximum adsorption capacity of 2000 mg/g, at pH = 5 and 25 oC. The RGO/CNF/PANI materials could be a promising absorbent for removing U (VI) in aqueous solution because of their high adsorption capacity and convenient magnetic separation.
