Abstract


Chief objective of present study was to examine the eliminative potential of congo red dye from aqueous solutions by using adsorption process with the help of untreated Cucumis sativus peels (UCSP) and treated Cucumis sativus peels (TCSP) in the form of comparison. An adsorptive elimination of congo red dye was attain first time by using Cucumis sativus peels from aqueous solutions. The effects of different parameters in adsorption process like effect of pH, dose of adsorbent, initial concentration and agitation time were also investigated. Maximum percentage elimination of congo red dye by using untreated Cucumis sativus peels was occurred at pH of 7, adsorbent dose of 300 mg, initial concentration of 150 ppm and agitation time of 250 minutes, which was 95.31% and using treated Cucumis sativus peels, it was occurred at pH of 7, adsorbent dose of 500 mg, agitation time 250 minutes and initial concentration of 120 ppm, which was 98.48%. Adsorption kinetics study indicated that adsorption of congo red dye was best followed by pseudo second order kinetics model as compared to pseudo first order kinetics model. Treated Cucumis sativus peels was found to be performed well for elimination of congo red dye from aqueous solutions as compared to untreated Cucumis sativus peels.
