- ... In this present work, to overcome the problem of eutrophication due to phosphate an attempt was made to develop eco-friendly composite materials using chitosan and bentonite. To improve the properties of bentonite (bent) and chitosan (CS), chitosan supported bentonite (CSBent) composites were prepared and utilized for phosphate removal. To enhance the uptake capacity of CSBent, various multivalent ...

- ... In this study, three types of crosslinked organic-inorganic hybrid biocomposites, such as chitosan/bentonite, chitosan/titanium oxide, and chitosan/alumina (ChBT, ChTi, and ChAl respectively) were prepared and utilized for the removal of nitrate from water by batch biosorption experiments. Effects of crosslinker dose, initial nitrate concentration, contact time, initial pH of the nitrate solution, ...
