Abstract

In this study, the bio-nanocomposite composed of chitosan and nanoclay was prepared by solution intercalation method. The membrane was subsequently fabricated by dry/wet phase separation technique. The structure of bio-nanocomposite was characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The membrane was applied to adsorb methylene blue (MB) for water treatment. The adsorption of MB was monitored through UV-Vis spectroscopy. The results showed that bionanocomposite membrane could adsorb MB up to 97.9 % in 150 min. The MB adsorption of bionanocomposite membrane was 234 times as high as the adsorption of the conventional chitosan films that is promising for environmental applications.
