Summary of "Removal of multiple heavy metal ions using a macromolecule chelating flocculant xanthated chitosan."

In this paper, the removal performance and mechanism of xanthated chitosan (XCTS) towards heavy metal ions are investigated. XCTS possesses both strong chelating abilities and excellent flocculation properties, which can effectively remove several kinds of heavy metal ions, such as Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn. It has a good potential for practical application. In a flocculation test of a mixed component solution, the removal rates of Cr, Cu and Cd reach 100%, 100% and 99.1%, respectively. The removal rates are significantly greater than that of a single component solution. It indicates that there is a synergistic effect between different metal ions. Moreover, the selectivity of XCTS for Cr and Cu is obviously superior to that for Cd; XCTS is easier to combine with the heavy metal ions belonging to hard acids.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The technique of washing tissue specimens with a concentrated solution of a heavy metal salt and letting it dry. The specimen will be covered with a very thin layer of the metal salt, being excluded in areas where an adsorbed macromolecule is present. The macromolecules allow electrons from the beam of an electron microscope to pass much more readily than the heavy metal; thus, a reversed or negative image of the molecule is created.

Complexing agent for removal of traces of heavy metal ions. It acts also as a hypocalcemic agent.

A chelating agent used as an antidote to heavy metal poisoning.

Chelating agent used for heavy metal poisoning and assay. It causes diabetes.

Chemicals that bind to and remove ions from solutions. Many chelating agents function through the formation of COORDINATION COMPLEXES with METALS.
