    Abstract: This work focuses on the retention capacity of Cu2+ and Cr6+ ions in water by adsorption on a thermally modified biosorbent based on cotton cakes. The solutions treated are synthetic copper nitrate solutions rich in Cu2+ ions and potassium dichromate rich in Cr6+ ions in distilled water. The adsorption tests were carried out by mixing, with stirrin... Show More

    Abstract: In the perspective of sustainable development, which involves the use of all biomass, two oilseeds have been selected according to their potential interests: Citrullus lanatus and Lagenaria siceraria. The physico-chemical characterization (oil and extraction cake) has been done. Thus, for extracted oils, unsaturated fatty acids are in the majority ... Show More
