STUDIES ON THE REMOVAL OF METHYL ORANGE FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTION USING MODIFIED BANANA TRUNK FIBRE

Abstract


Banana trunk fibers are abundantly available and are usually discarded as an agricultural waste. However, in recent times it has used an efficient sorbent for methyl orange. Here, we describe the use of modified BTF as an efficient sorbent for methyl orange. The effect of pH, amount of adsorbent and concentrations of adsorbate were studied using modified Banana trunk fiber. All the experiments were carried out at normal temperature (25-280C) and neutral pH. A set of reading taken by varying pH shows that adsorption capacity also influenced by pH of the two kind of adsorbent prepared, adsorbent prepare by oven drying is found to be more effective than adsorbent by natural drying. A kinetic model applied to the adsorption by banana trunk fiber was evaluated and it was found that the equilibrium data where well described by Type I adsorption model.
