A 3D Stable Metal–Organic Framework for Highly Efficient Adsorption and Removal of Drug Contaminants from Water
AbstractWe herein selected a 3D metal–organic framework decorated with carboxylate groups as an adsorbent to remove the pharmaceutical molecules of diclofenac sodium and chlorpromazine hydrochloride from water. The experiment aimed at exploring the effect factors of initial concentration, equilibrium time, temperature, pH and adsorbent dosage on the adsorption process. The adsorption uptake rate of the diclofenac sodium is much higher than that of the chlorpromazine hydrochloride. This paper presents the high adsorption capacity of diclofenac sodium, in which porous MOFs are used for the removal of drug contaminants from water. According to linear fitting with adsorption isotherm equation and kinetic equations, diclofenac sodium conforms to the Langmuir model and pseudo-first-order kinetic equation, while chlorpromazine hydrochloride accords with the Temkin model and pseudo-second-order kinetic equation. The results of the study indicate that the title compound could be a promising hybrid material for removing diclofenac sodium and chlorpromazine hydrochloride from wastewater. View Full-Text
