Metallic anion removal from dilute aqueous solutions using polymer-surfactant aggregate process: Effect of surfactant chain length

Abstract:

A novel process was developed to remove metallic anions from dilute aqueous solutions using polymer-surfactant aggregates (PSAs). This process uses a cationic surfactant to form micelle-like aggregates on oppositely charged polymer chains, thus forming PSAs. The PSAs can bind with dilute anions and self-flocculate. Subsequently, the anion-loaded PSA flocculates can be separated from the solution by gravity settling. The concentration of chemical residue, however, is relatively high in the tre...
