Abstract
In this study, palm shell activated carbon powder (PSAC) and magnesium silicate (MgSiO3) modified PSAC (MPSAC) were thoroughly investigated for fluoride (F?) adsorption. F? adsorption isotherms showed that PSAC and MPSAC over-performed some other reported F? adsorbents with adsorption capacities of 116?mg?g?1 and 150?mg?g?1, respectively. Interestingly, the MgSiO3 impregnated layer changed the adsorption behavior of F? from monolayer to heterogeneous multilayer based on the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models verified by chi-square test (X2). Thermodynamic parameters indicated that the F? adsorption on PSAC and MPSAC was spontaneous and exothermic. PSAC and MPSAC were characterized using FESEM-EDX, XRD, FTIR and XPS to investigate the F? adsorption mechanism. Based on the regeneration tests using NaOH (0.01?M), PSAC exhibited poor regeneration (<20%) while MPSAC had steady adsorption efficiencies (∼70%) even after 5 regeneration cycles. This is due to highly polarized C?F bond was found on PSAC while Mg?F bond was distinguished on MPSAC, evidently denoting that the F? adsorption is mainly resulted from the exchange of hydroxyl (-OH) group. It was concluded that PSAC would be a potential adsorbent for in-situ F? groundwater remediation due to its capability to retain F? without leaching out in a wide range pH. MPSAC would be an alternative adsorbent for ex-situ F? water remediation because it can easily regenerate with NaOH solution. With the excellent F? adsorption properties, both PSAC and MPSAC offer as promising adsorbents for F? remediation in the aqueous phase.
