Abstract

This study comprehensively discusses the use of aluminophosphate with the presence of silicate as an adsorbents material for the removal of Cadmium. The effect of adding silicate to the material increased the removal capacity pf the adsorbent material up to a certain point. Adding more that 7.5% of silicate results in the reduction of removal capacity. Adsorption kinetics was done using the best adsorbent sample (adsorbent with 7.5% silicate). Results showed that more than 90% was removed within the first 30 minutes of the adsorption process. This shows that this material has great potential as an adsorbent for the removal of cadmium.
