Optimization on Adsorption Process of Congo Red onto Magnetic Ni0.5Cu0.5Fe2O4/SiO2 Nanocomposites and Their Adsorption Mechanism
Magnetic Ni0.5Cu0.5Fe2O4/SiO2 nanocomposites were prepared via a solution combustion process, and were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Energy dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The magnetic Ni0.5Cu0.5Fe2O4/SiO2 nanocomposites were employed to remove Congo red (CR) from aqueous solution, and the adsorption process was optimized by response surface methodology (RSM). The optimum conditions were the silica content of 12.6 wt%, the calcination temperature of 501 °C and the pH value of 7.13. The adsorption kinetics and the adsorption isotherm of CR onto magnetic Ni0.5Cu0.5Fe2O4/SiO2 nanocomposites at room temperature were investigated, and the intraparticle diffusion kinetics model and Redlich-Peterson isotherm model fitted well the respective process.
