M. Sathya; G. Muthuraman; S. Elumalai

Volume 7, Issue 3 , July 2016, , Pages 294-303

  A bulk liquid membrane (BLM) system contained Di (2-ethyl hexyl) phosphoric acid (D2EHPA) as an extractant was used for transport of malachite green (MG) dye from textile wastewater. D2EHPA present in n-hexane is an effective, efficient and highly selective carrier for the transport of MG dye through ...  Read More

Removal of Heavy Metals from Wastewater Using Tribulus terrestris Herbal Plants Powder

S. Sasikala; Govindaraju Muthuraman

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 39-47

  The potential of economically cheaper Tribulus terrestris was assessed for iron adsorption from aqueous solutions. The effects of pH, Contact time, sorbent dose, initial metal ion concentration and temperature on the uptake of iron were studied in batch process. Chemical treatment processes are ineffective ...  Read More
