Abstract

Potensi sisa pertanian di Nigeria sebagai satu pelopor baharu telah dimanfaatkan untuk menyediakan karbon teraktif untuk penjerapan klorofenol daripada sisa air kumbahan sintetik. Karbon teraktif yang optimum disediakan melalui pengaktifan fizikokimia daripada sekam benih Prosopis africana sebagai prekursor baharu menggunakan kalium oksalat, natrium asetat dan kalium karbonat sebagai ejen pengaktifan kimia. Potentials of an agricultural waste in Nigeria as a new precursor were harnessed for preparation of activated carbon for the adsorption of chlorophenols from synthetic wastewaters. Optimal activated carbons were prepared by physicochemical activation from the seed hulls of Prosopis africana as a new precursor using potassium oxalate, sodium acetate and potassium carbonate as the chemical activating agents.
