Adsorptive Removal of Ciprofloxacin by Ferric Chloride Modified Biochar

Huaxuan Zhao, Zhengmei Cao, Jin Li, Yinhai Lang

Abstract

A magnetic biochar (MBC) was fabricated through pyrolysis of FeCl3 impregnated reed stalk powder, and used for ciprofloxacin (CIP) adsorption from aqueous solution. The structure and properties of the MBC were characterized by elemental analyzer, BET, SEM and FTIR. Results showed that the prepared MBC had a large specific surface area and pore volume, which was conducive to the CIP adsorption. Adsorption of CIP on MBC was of strong pH dependence and demonstrated a bimodal curve. Ionic strength increasing was advantageous to the CIP adsorption. The Langmuir model and the pseudo second-order model presented better fittings for the adsorption equilibrium and kinetic data. Adsorption thermodynamic parameters manifested that the adsorption behavior was a spontaneous, endothermic and entropy-increasing process. Pore-filling effect, π-π EDA interaction, electrostatic interaction, hydrogen bonding formation and hydrophobic interaction were important mechanisms for CIP adsorption on the MBC.
