The physicochemical characteristics of Mg-biochar composites derived from kelp and pine after pretreatment with MgCl2 were analyzed, and their adsorption capacities for an anionic dye, Congo red (CR), were evaluated.
After pretreating 60 g of kelp and pine sawdust in 1 L of 0.1 M MgCl2・6H2O, the raw materials were pyrolyzed at 500℃ to produce Mg-biochar composites (kelp based KB-Mg and pine based PB-Mg). The fundamental physicochemical characteristics of the Mg-biochar composites were examined, and their adsorption capacities for CR were investigated using different initial pH values, adsorption kinetic models, and adsorption isotherm models.
and discussion : The Mg-biochar composites showed the development of uniform deposits of Mg minerals primarily as MgO crystal on the surface by the surface modification with MgCl2. When the pristine biochars were surface-modified with MgCl2, their adsorption capacities for CR were significantly increased over the entire pH range tested. The CR adsorption process by all biochars was best described with the pseudo-first order kinetics model, and the adsorption isotherm characteristics were better described with the Langmuir isotherm model for all biochars. The Langmuir maximum adsorption capacities for KB-Mg and PB-Mg were 423.0 mg/g and 394.7 mg/g, respectively. It is suggested that the main mechanism for CR adsorption on the Mg-biochars is electrostatic attraction between CR and the biochars.
The results showed that surface modification with MgCl2 could greatly enhance the CR adsorption capacity of biochars, and the results demonstrated the great potential of KB-Mg and PB-Mg for CR removal.
