Point Zero Charge Determination and Fluoride Adsorption on Natural Red Ash (Metal Oxide)
Asian Journal of Applied Chemistry Research,
The PZC is essential parameter for the characterization of certain materials used for the treatment of organic or inorganic wastes in the environment, particularly from waste water and industrial sludge. Potentiometric titration and batch experimentation method was used to determine PZC value and type of adsorption isotherm behavior observed. Red ash is the natural metal oxides collected from the rift valley of Ethiopia which have PZC values of 3.35 for 0.5g, 1g and 1.5g adsorbent dose studied. On the adsorbent surface, monolayer and homogeneous adsorption process of fluoride observed. Therefore, based on the interest of the researcher and the adjustment of the pH of red ash solution might used for the treatment of ionic wastes.
