Solvothermal Synthesis of Humic Acid-Supported CeO2 Nanosheets Composite as High Performance Adsorbent for Congo Red Removal
Surface properties and structures of materials are essential for their adsorption of pollutants in water. Humic acids (HA)-supported CeO2 nanosheet composites are synthesised by solvothermal method. The size of CeO2 nanosheets are approximately 100–500 nm. The obtained composite exhibits superior adsorption ability for Congo Red (CR) in water, which can be attributed to its unique structure and highly dispersed CeO2 nanosheet. The composite’s adsorption behaviour of CR follows a pseudo-second-order mode and Langmuir adsorption model well, and the maximum adsorptive capacity for CR achieves 260 mg g−1. The presence of CeO2 nanosheets enhances surface area and enriches the mesoporous structure of the composites, thereby promoting CR adsorption capacity.
