Abstract
The potential of fly ash, a solid waste generated in huge amount from thermal power plant (TPP), to act as an adsorbent for removal of 2-nitrophenol (2-NP) from water has been investigated. The operational parameters and extent of uptake was determined in standardized batch operation. The process is optimized in terms of initial solute concentration, pH and temperature of the solution, dose and particle size of the adsorbent, agitation time and speed. The sorption characteristics defined mainly by its capacity as well as low cost recommend the use of fly ash as a potential and alternative sorbent for 2-NP removal from aqueous environment.
