Research Conducted at University of Technology Has Provided New Information about Synthetic Metals (Manganese removal from aqueous media using polyaniline nanocomposite coated on wood sawdust)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Synthetic Metals is now available. According to news reporting from Babol Sar, Iran, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In the present study the adsorption of manganese ions from aqueous solution by polyaniline/sawdust (PAn/SD) nanocomposite is experimentally investigated. The experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of various experimental parameters i.e., pH, adsorbent dosage and contact time on the removal efficiency."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Technology, "The results showed that optimum conditions for manganese removal were found to be at pH of 10, adsorbent dosage of 10 g/L and equilibrium contact time of 30 min. The kinetic of adsorption system have been studied based on the assumption of a pseudo-second order rate law. The experimental results have been analyzed using a pseudo-Langmuir adsorption isotherm and a pseudo-Freundlich adsorption isotherm models. The Freundlich adsorption isotherm model was found to represent the equilibrium adsorption isotherm better than Langmuir adsorption isotherm."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "According to the evaluation using the pseudo-Freundlich model, the monolayer adsorption capacity (q(max)) of PAn/SD for manganese ions was obtained to be 58.824 mg/g."
