Abstract

This study introduces Fraxinus tree leaves as a new, efficient biosorbent of As(III). A suitable response surface was achieved by running a central composite design. Simultaneous optimization of both responses (R% and q) was carried out and 67% of the goal of desirability function was attained. The results obtained for simultaneous optimization are R¼70% and q¼80.6mg g1 with 67% desirability in m¼600mg L1 where s¼0.10 g and pH¼3.9. Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms model were applied in explaining the sorbent–sorbate equilibrium study, and maximum capacity uptake equals 99.97 mg g1 and KL¼0.05 L mg1 has been obtained. Fourier Transfer Infra-Red (FT-IR) and kinetic results were considered to examine the functional groups involved and the adsorption mechanism.
