Summary of "An innovative lanthanum carbonate grafted microfibrous composite for phosphate adsorption in wastewater."

Excessive presence of phosphorus in waters can cause eutrophication, a global unsolved environmental problem that has caused harmful effects to our eco-system and the source of our drinking water. In the study presented in this paper, a novel lanthanum carbonate grafted microfibrous composite (LC-MC) adsorbent was synthesized aiming at removing large amount of phosphate in wastewater efficiently. An optimized LC-MC was firstly prepared. The most suitable pH for the phosphate uptake was pH 7 to 9. The adsorption showed similar behavior in a wide range of ionic strength. The presence of co-existing anions was proved to have a less significant effect on the removal. The adsorption isotherm data were better fitted by the Freundlich isotherm than the Langmuir isotherm. The equilibrium was reached at about 300 min of contact time. 80 % of original adsorption capacity can be achieved even after 5 cycles of adsorption- desorption operations, indicating great regenerative performance of the adsorbent. The adsorption mechanism study showed that the ligand exchange played a key role during the phosphate adsorption.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Lanthanum. The prototypical element in the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol La, atomic number 57, and atomic weight 138.91. Lanthanide ion is used in experimental biology as a calcium antagonist; lanthanum oxide improves the optical properties of glass.

Adhesives used to fix prosthetic devices to bones and to cement bone to bone in difficult fractures. Synthetic resins are commonly used as cements. A mixture of monocalcium phosphate, monohydrate, alpha-tricalcium phosphate, and calcium carbonate with a sodium phosphate solution is also a useful bone paste.

Protein-mineral complexes that comprise substrates needed for the normal calcium-carbonate-phosphate homeostasis. Nanobacteria was the prior name for the particles which were originally thought to be microorganisms.

A field of chemistry which pertains to chemical compounds or ions that do not contain the element carbon (with the exception of carbon dioxide and compounds containing a carbonate radical, e.g., calcium carbonate).

Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.
