Abstract: The biosorption of arsenic (III) by using immobilized biomass of banana peels (Musa paradisiaca L.). Biosorbent were prepared by immobilizing biomass on silica gel. Immobilization enhance sorption chromium ion and repetitive use of sorbent could be achieved. The influence of several operating experimental parameters such as solution pH, biosorbent dose concentration, initial arsenic (III) concentration, contact time, temperature and agitation rate determined in the experiment were effective in determining the efficiency of arsenic (III) onto banana peels (Musa paradisiaca L.). Langmuir adsorption isotherm, Frenudlich adsorption isotherm, Dubinin-Kaganer-Radushkevich (DKR) adsorption isotherm and Temkin adsorption isotherm were tested in batch equilibrium studies. For kinetics studies, Pseudo-first-order model, Pseudo-second-order model, Elovich model and Weber and Morris intra-particle diffusion model were applied to the experimental data and followed by thermodynamic study. The results showed that immobilized waste biosorbent was a low-cost promising sorbent for sequester of arsenic (III) ions from wastewater.
Keywords: Arsenic (III), immobilization, banana peels (Musa paradisiaca L.), silica gel, adsorption isotherm, adsorption kinetics, thermodynamic study.
