New Hydrofluoric Acid Study Results Reported from University of Kalyani (Taguchi design and equilibrium modeling for fluoride adsorption on cerium loaded cellulose nanocomposite bead)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Hydrofluoric Acid have been published. According to news reporting out of Bengal, India, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "The cooperative influence of operational variables for fluoride adsorption on cerium loaded cellulose nanocomposite bead (CCNB) was assessed using Taguchi design tool. The percentage contribution of each operational variable was determined."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Kalyani, "The solution pH, with a maximum contribution of 80.78%, indicates its highest influence on the response, the adsorption percent of fluoride. The quality and validity of the experimental design were assessed from ANOVA and subsequently by the confirmation experiment. The equilibrium adsorption data showed that the Temkin isotherm is the most suited one compared to the Langmuir and Freundlich model."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It is found that almost 90% adsorbed fluoride can be eluted with 0.01 (N) NaOH and the regenerated bead can successively be reused for at least three times."
