Abstract

The present study deals with the adsorption of nickel and lead from pharmaceutical wastewater by agricultural waste material. Wild jack fruit and acasia bark were treated with sulphuric acid to imporve the surface properties such as pore volume and particle size. The SEM and EDX analysis were used to find the surface structure and the metal ions present on the surface of the adsorbent. From the FTIR analysis it was possible to find the various functional groups existing on the surface of adsorbent which were responsible for the adsorption process. From the equilibrium studies and the adsorption capacity obtained it showed that both the materials were effective adsorbents to remove the metal ions from the solution.
