Physical Adsorption of Arsenic

Water problem addressed: Too dirty

Summary: Different samples of underground water from different sectors of the city of Bahía Blanca and Las Toscas, Argentina, were collected in the present work. In order to determinate a method for Arsenic (As) retention, chicken eggshells were made undergo a heat treatment at high temperatures in order to form hydroxyapatite (HAp), a compound capable of retaining it. In this way, mass transfer for the water to the material obtained was studied, taking advantage of a common household waste’s physical adsorption properties.
