Performance of Dye-Affinity Beads for Aluminum Removal in Magnetically Stabilized Fluidized Bed
This paper reveals about Magnetic poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (mPHEMA) beads in the size range of 80-120 ?m were produced by free radical co-polymerization of HEMA and ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA) in the presence of magnetite particles (Fe3O4). Then, metal complexing ligand alizarin yellow was covalently attached onto mPHEMA beads. Alizarin yellow loading was 208 ?mol/g. These beads were used for the removal of Al(III) ions from tap and dialysis water in a magnetically stabilized fluidized bed.
