Utilisation of Cellulose-based Materials as Adsorbents: A Review
Keywords:Cellulose, Adsorption, Dye, Adsorbent
Cellulose is one of abundantly available biopolymer present in nature, which has its wide application for the removal of dyes by adsorption method; these cellulose-based materials have been used as an effective adsorbent, presenting high specific areas with contracted pore size distributions, easy modification, light weight, biodegradability, biocompatibility, high ductility etc. This review paper presents the various research papers and articles published, which have research work related to cellulose and its derivatives as a successful adsorbent. This review paper reflects that cellulose and its derivative based materials are very effective in treatment of dye effluents via adsorption technique. These materials can be recycled and reused for many adsorption cycles.
