Abstract

THE POTENTIALS OF CHRYSOPHYLUM ALBIDUM PEELS AS NATURAL ADSORBENT

*Nleonu E.C., Oguzie E.E., Onuoha G.N. and Okeke P.I.

ABSTRACT

The physico-chemical properties and functional surface group of Chrysophyllum albidum peel was studied using standard method and Fourier Transformation Spectrocopy (FTIR) respectively to access its potentials as a natural adsorbent in treatment of wastewater. The IR spectra showed considerable functional groups such as –OH, -CH, C=O and C-O while the physico-chemical analysis shown, moisture (4.77%), pH (3.96), electrical conductivity (266μS), specific gravity (0.5739), bulk density (0.6424g/ml), ash (5.19%), fiber (19.81%), protein (3.75%), fat (14.35%) and carbohydrate (52.12%). The results indicates that peel of C. albidum could be used as a low cost alternative adsorbent to commercial adsorbent in the treatment of waste water.

Keywords: Chrysophyllum albidum peel, physico-chemical properties, adsorbent, waste water.
