Montmorillonite-Cu(II)/Fe(III) oxides magnetic material for removal of cyanobacterial Microcystis aeruginosa and its regeneration
In this paper, montmorillonite-Cu(II)/Fe(III) oxides magnetic material was prepared and used for removal of harmful algae from water. The material was prepared by the supporting of Cu(II)/Fe(III) oxides on pillared montmorillonite and was characterized by XRD, zeta potential measurements. The results showed that the whole material is magnetic. The prepared magnetic material was effective for the removal of cyanobacterial Microcystis aeruginosa and the loaded particles was chemically regenerated using acetone solution.
