Removal of Heavy Metal Copper (II) from Aqueous Solution Using Chemically Modified Orange Peel

Kumar Joshi, Yashkumar Satasiya, Akash Patel, Momin Mustufa

The removal of copper (II) ions from the aqueous solution was the main aim of the project. The need for using cheap and eco-friendly adsorbent for the removal of copper (II) ions from aqueous solution is of paramount importance. Orange peel (OP) was modified using NaOH and methanol to prepare an orange peel adsorbent which was named Modified Orange peel (MOP). The adsorption behavior of Heavy metal (Cu+2) were studied. Batch operations were carried out in liquid phase to observe the effect of various experimental parameters such as amount of adsorbent, contact time. The characterization of orange peel sample was also examined. The outcomes indicated that orange peel can be used as a good low-cost alternative for treatment of effluents containing Copper (II) in water.
