ADSORPTION OF SIMAZINE AND BOSCALID ONTO ACID-ACTIVATED NATURAL CLINOPTILOLITE
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 14Nr. 7
Abstract It has been recently shown that acid activation enhances the ability of zeolitic tuffs to bind weak organic bases. More specifically, tuff containing acid-resistant zeolites (i.e. clinoptilolite) exhibits higher sorption capacity than chabazite/phillipsite-rich tuff. Based on the above considerations, we investigated in depth the adsorption behaviour of two pesticides onto acid-activated clinoptilolitic tuff under different experimental conditions.
