Separation of Fe(II) by the DEMI and TEMPO Oxidized Cellulose


The description of some adsorption properties and behaviour of oxycellulose with Fe2+ ions is presented. Filter media from oxycelluloses materials have enormous sorption activity. There is described a sorption mechanism of poly 1,4-β-D anhydroglucuronic acid (PAGA). Utilisation of UV-VIS spectroscopy is shown on the adsorption process of optimalisation of oxycelluloses application. Supporting influence is demonstrated on the adsorption isotherms of Fe2+ ions in the competitive environment of NaCl, MgCl2.
