Adsorption Characteristics of Activated Palmyra Male Inflorescence for the Reclamation of Coloured Effluents Containing Malachite Green Oxalate

jasem Front Page
Adsorption characteristics of activated palmyra male inflorescence for the removal of malachite green oxalate, basic dye from aqueous solutions, have been Investigated. The effect of temperature, and pH on the removal of Malachite green oxalate was investigated. The study of the thermodynamic properties revealed the process of removal of dye is exothermic and spontaneous.
