Abstract

Biosorption of Metal complex Orange R dye by custard apple bark (Annona squamosa) in aqueous solution and textile industry wastewater was investigated. Batch experiments were carried out to determine the effect of pH, particle size, biosorbent dose, contact time and initial dye concentration. Characterization of biosorbent was also done by FTIR and SEM. Biosorption isotherm models were also applied to experimental data. The results showed that the data fitted well for Langmuir isotherm model as well as Fruendlich isotherm. The study proves the effectiveness of Annona squamosa bark for the removal of metal complex dyes from the wastewater
