Abstract


The present work describes of a combined bio- and chemosorption of permanganate by Prosopis cineraria leaf powder using batch process. The plant is locally available in arid region and called as Khejari. The permanganate removal capacity of PCLP have been studied at various parameters like concentration of Mn (VII) ion, adsorbent dosage, pH, contact time, shaking speed, etc. The Langmuir and Freundlich adsorption models have been applied to describe the isotherms and isotherm constant are given.
