AbstractIn the present study, factors influencing the adsorption of Pb (II), Ni (II) & Cd (II) from aqueous solution by pollen shells have been investigated at 30 ± 1 ◦C. Two techniques of adsorption were used; batch adsorption and continuing adsorption. The optimum results obtained from the first technique (600 µm for adsorbent and 7 pH) were used in the continuing adsorption tests. Highest adsorption occurred after passing the ionized water through the adsorption column filled with 20 cm of adsorbent materials for 30 min.
The study also showed that palm tree pollen shells can be used efficiently as an affordable adsorbent to remove heavy metal ions.
