Boron doped ordered mesoporous carbon (BMC) was prepared to improve the adsorption of Pb(II). The effects of several parameters such as contact time, pH, and ionic strength on the adsorption by both pristine ordered mesoporous carbon (OMC) and BMC were investigated. Thermodynamic, sorption isotherm and adsorption kinetics models were used to study the adsorption mechanisms by each of the adsorbents. Based on intraparticle diffusion model, the adsorption process by the two adsorbents mainly involved the quick liquid-film diffusion stage and slow pore diffusion portion, and fitting experimental data with Temkin model indicates that the adsorption process by both of the adsorbents involve physisorption and chemisorption. Based on Langmuir model, the estimated maximum adsorption capacity for BMC was about 1.3 times higher than the pristine OMC. Moreover, BMC retained good adsorption performance in tap and lake water, and could be regenerated effectively and recycled using EDTA. The results suggested that BMC, with enhanced adsorption performance compared with OMC, could be considered as very effective and promising materials for Pb (II) removal from wastewater.
