Lecturer and Master Student from Chemical Engineering Department publish research in an international journal

Assistant Professor  Yasser I. Abdul-Aziz and Master student Mena M.Nabeel Aljumaili in the Chemical Engineering Department of Al-Nahrain University published research entitled:

High surface area peat moss biochar and its potential for Chromium metal adsorption from aqueous solutions

 

in the journal, 

South African Journal of Chemical Engineering

which is located in the Scopus database with a rating of (Q1) and an impact site score 6.8

 The research focuses on developing activated carbon with a high surface area from peat moss precursors using phosphoric acid (H3PO4) as a chemical activator. The prepared activated carbon was then used for the adsorption of Chromium (Cr+2) heavy metal ions from wastewater. The best BET surface area was 1692.59 m2/g. As well as the maximum adsorption capacity was 493.3 mg/g
