Summary of "Fluorescence-sensitive adsorbent based on cellulose using for mercury detection and removal from aqueous solution with selective "on-off" response."

A new fluorogenic bio-adsorbent was successfully synthesized for detection and adsorption of mercury ions in aqueous solution. It showed high sensitivity in removing Hg (II) at low concentration with a detection limit of 84 ppb which was below the maximum discharge standard in enterprise drain off water in China, besides, the adsorbent had good selectivity towards Hg (II) among numerous kinds of cations in water that it showed fluorescent quenching properties for Hg (II) ions due to photo-induced electron transfer. In addition, batch adsorption experiments were investigated to study the influence of initial concentration of metal ions, contact time, pH of the solution on the adsorption capacity. Equilibrium adsorption isotherms demonstrated the Hg (II) removing process fitted well with Langmuir isotherm model, and the maximum adsorption capacity for mercury was measured to be 143.88 mg/g. Furthermore, the adsorption kinetics was found to follow pseudo-second-order model. FTIR spectra and SEM-elemental mapping clearly confirmed the adsorbed heavy metal ions.
