VALENZUELA, F et al. ADSORPTION OF POLLUTANT IONS FROM RESIDUAL AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS ONTO NANO-STRUCTURED CALCIUM SILICATE. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2013, vol.58, n.2, pp.1744-1749. ISSN 0717-9707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072013000200023.

The sorption of contaminant ions existing in residual aqueous solutions onto nano-structured calcium silicate has been studied. The sorbent was prepared by chemical reaction between a soluble solution of sodium silicate and calcium hydroxide. X-ray diffraction analysis showed the amorphous character of the obtained calcium silicate, although patterns associated to wollastonite, CaSiO3, and larnyta-syn, Ca2SiO4 were detected. The particle mean size was approximate 0.5 to 1.0 ìçé having an average BET surface area of 333.0 m2/g and a mean pore diameter variable between 15.8-23.6 nm. The nano-structured calcium silicates were contacted with industrial residual aqueous solutions containing, among others, Cu(II), Zn(II), Cd(II) and the anions PO43-, SO4' and CrO4', being copper (II) and phosphate the ions that were most easily and quantitatively adsorbed. The results of equilibrium experiments showed that the Redlich-Peterson adsorption isotherm model explained the experimental results for some metal ions.The experimental kinetics followed a pseudo-second-order kinetics model for Cu(II) and Zn(II) sorption.
