Summary of "Structural analysis and heavy metal adsorption of N-doped biochar from hydrothermal carbonization of Camellia sinensis waste."

N-doped biochar as adsorption material for heavy metal removal has attracted increasing concern in environmental application due to its unique features. Here, N-doped biochar was prepared by hydrothermal carbonization of Camellia sinensis branch waste using KOH/NHCl at 120-280 °C for 2 h under 0.4-6.5 MPa, followed by structural analysis. The results showed that the highest N content determined by elemental analysis could reach up to 6.18% in biochar, and the major N species were involved in graphitic N, pyrrolic N, and pyridinic N. Interestingly, these N-doped biochar exhibited the effective adsorption ability of Cu, Pb, Zn, and Cr. The batch adsorption behavior had a better adjustment to the pseudo-second-order kinetic and the Langmuir adsorption isotherm models. In brief, the present results are attributed to develop low-cost adsorbent for removing heavy metal ions.

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.

Therapy of heavy metal poisoning using agents which sequester the metal from organs or tissues and bind it firmly within the ring structure of a new compound which can be eliminated from the body.

Conditions associated with damage or dysfunction of the nervous system caused by exposure to heavy metals, which may cause a variety of central, peripheral, or autonomic nervous system injuries.

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

Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of HEAVY METALS. Acute and chronic exposures can cause ANEMIA; KIDNEY and LIVER damage; PULMONARY EDEMA; MEMORY LOSS and behavioral changes; bone deformities in children; and MISCARRIAGE or PREMATURE LABOR in pregnant women.
