    Amino functionalized hierarchically produced porous polyacrylamide microspheres for the removal of chromium(VI) from aqueous solution

    , Article Journal of Porous Materials ; Volume 24, Issue 6 , 2017 , Pages 1705-1715 ; 13802224 (ISSN) Karimi, M ; Nematollahzadeh, A ; Shojaei, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Porous silica microspheres were used as hard template to produce porous polyacrylamide microspheres. The microspheres were modified with ethylenediamine and used for the removal of hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] from aqueous solution. Scanning electron microscopy, thermogravimetry analysis, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy were utilized to characterize the adsorbent. Adsorption of Cr(VI) was conducted in batch and dynamic modes, and effect of various parameters including solution pH, adsorbent dose, initial concentration of Cr(VI) and agitation time on the adsorption process was studied. The optimum pH for the maximum adsorption (124 mg Cr(VI)/g dry polymer) was found to be 3.... 

    Removal of chromium from aqueous solution using polyaniline - Poly ethylene glycol composite

    , Article Journal of Hazardous Materials ; Volume 184, Issue 1-3 , December , 2010 , Pages 248-254 ; 03043894 (ISSN) Riahi Samani, M ; Borghei, S. M ; Olad, A ; Chaichi, M. J ; Sharif University of Technology
    The adsorption of chromium compounds from solutions by a composite of polyaniline/poly ethylene glycol (PANi/PEG) was investigated in this study. Experiments were conducted in batch mode under various operational conditions including agitation time, solution pH, PANi/PEG dose and initial concentration of chromium salts. Results showed that concentration of PEG at synthesizing stage has a significant effect on the capacity of produced composite for removal of chromium. Morphologically, PANi/PEG composite is closely dependent on the concentration of PEG. Maximum removal of hexavalent chromium was experienced when 2. g/L of PEG was used in synthesis of PANi/PEG. Removal of hexavalent chromium...
