Synthesis and Characterization of Mixed Al,Cu-Pillared and Copper Doped Al-Pillared Bentonite

In this paper, mixed aluminum and copper pillared clays (Al,Cu-PILCs) with different percentage of Cu and copper impregnated aluminum pillared clay (Cu@Al-PILC) were prepared using a bentonite sample. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, N2 adsorption-desorption and Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy. The results showed bentonite had a main reflection of montmorillonite that characterized by basal spacing, increased by pillaring.


The high demand of polymer composite for modern technique causes the need to create new varieties of such materials. At present, the production of a wide range of fillers and polymer matrices has already been produced, which allows the use of polymer composite materials as both structural materials and special purpose materials.


The adsorption of Copper (II) and Chromium (III) from aqueous solution by natural zeolite was investigated in fixed bed column. The effects of selected operating parameters such as flow rate and bed depth were evaluated. The breakthrough data are fitted well to Bed Depth Service Time (BDST) and Thomas models with high correlation coefficient, R2 = 0,91. The results showed that zeolite can be an effective adsorbent for Copper (II) and Chromium (III) removal.

Kinetic regularities of copper ions adsorption by natural zeolite

The kinetics of copper ions adsorption by natural zeolite has been investigated in the apparatus with mechanical stirrer. The presence of external diffusion and pore diffusion area was established. For the external diffusive area, the dependence of mass transfer coefficient on stirrer rotation speed was confirmed; the dependence was described using a criterial equation. For the pore diffusion area, the equation is adduced by means of which the effective coefficient of pore diffusion was calculated.

Concurrent Sorption of Copper and Chromium Cations by Natural Zeolite

The aim of this work was to study the process of adsorption of Copper and Chromium cations by natural zeolites in static conditions. The change of the chemical composition of the surface of the zeolite as a result of sorption of heavy metals was investigated. The influence of the type of the ions and pH selectivity in absorption of heavy metals removal by zeolite was analysed. The reasons for the selective extraction of Copper from two-component solution were explained.

Frequency-resonance technology for the remote sensing data processing: the results of approbation on the ore deposits in Australia and south America

Purpose. Analyzing the results of experimental testing and practical application of mobile direct prospecting technology of the remote sensing (RS) data frequency-resonance processing and interpretation (decoding) for "direct" searches of the various types minerals on the ore deposits and prospective areas. Exploratory studies were conducted with its application within ore bearing areas in Australia and Southern America. Design/methodology/approach.

Mechanism and Mathematical Model of Н2S Chemisorption on Modified Bentonite

New H2S adsorbent was synthesized on the basis of bentonite. It was analyzed using elemental and BET surface area analysis. Models and mathematical representations of mechanisms that govern the chemisorption of hydrogen sulfide on the chemically treated bentonite were presented. The models adequacy was assessed by means of statistic t-criterion.

Spectrophotometric Investigation of Cu(II) Ions Interaction with 1-(5-Benzylthiazol-2-yl)azonaphthalen-2-ol

The creation of Cu2+ ions chelate complex with 1-(5-benzylthiazol-2-yl)azonaphthalen-2-ol has been investigated using spectrophotometric methods. The optimal conditions for the complexation reaction and for extraction into the organic phase were found. The extraction-photometric method of copper microquantities determination was developed.
