Magnetic Zeolite-Polymer Composite as an Adsorbent for the Remediation of Wastewaters Containing Vanadium

Nomcebo H. Mthombeni, Sandrine Mbakop, and Maurice S. Onyango
Abstract—Magnetic natural zeolite-polypyrrole composite was prepared for removal of vanadium from aqueous solution. The effects of initial pH, sorbent dosage, adsorption isotherms on removal efficiency were investigated. Up to 75% removal efficiency was obtained when the pH was 5 and the initial vanadium concentration was 100 mg/L. The isotherm data fitted well to the Langmuir isotherm model. The maximum adsorption capacity determined from the Langmuir isotherm was 57.803 mg/g at 25°C.

Index Terms—Vanadium, magnetic, zeolite, adsorption.
