Remediation Of Polluted Water By Diclofenac Drug By ‎adsorption Technology

Authors : Boukhalfa N, Djebri N, Boutahala M,


In this paper, we addressed the issue of using organo-K10 ‎montmorillonite as adsorbent of DS to remove it from aqueous ‎environment. An organo-K10 montmorillonite (MK10-C16) was ‎prepared by intercalating the organic cation ‎cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (C16) in a K10 montmorillonite ‎‎(MK10), than characterized using XRD analytical technique. The ‎organo-K10 montmorillonite displayed enhanced affinity for the ‎DS in water. Using a linear regression, the pseudo-second-order ‎model describes better the results of the kinetics. The adsorption ‎data fitted well with Langmuir isotherm. The maximum ‎adsorption capacity of diclofenac is estimated to be 63.33 mgg-1. ‎The results revealed that MK10-C16 have a high potential to be ‎used as adsorbent for the removal of DS from aqueous solution.‎
