Abstract

Summary Sorption of hexavalent chromium ions from aqueous solution by 4- vinyl pyridine (4-VP) grafted poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fibers was studied. The Influences of adsorption time, pH of solution and Cr(VI) concentration on the adsorbed amount were investigated. 30 minutes of treatment time was found to be sufficient to reach equilibrium. pH 3.0 was found as the optimum pH value in the process. The maximum adsorption capacity of the material (ks) was found to be 263.16 mg g-1. It was found that the reactive fibers are stable and regenerable by acid or base without losing their activity.
