Investigation of Cu metal adsorption using acorn caps obtained from Quercus robur L. #

Writer(s): Zafer Zeybek 1, Şükrü Dursun 2,

Due to population growth in the world and the collective lives of people, natural resources in the world are rapidly depleting or being recycled and becoming polluted. Pollutants can also pollute the atmosphere, especially the soil and water resources. On the other hand, sources contaminated with these pollutants also affect each other. Especially during the processing of mines and the production of new products, many metal derivatives are mixed with soil and water resources. Particularly, there are difficulties in removing the low concentration of metal pollution. In addition to the use of chemical methods in the treatment process, biological processes are also used in some studies. In this present study, the acorn cap which is one of the natural materials and LCAs can be used for the removal of copper ions which can be found in low concentrations in water sources. Furthermore, the adsorption process was investigated with SEM + EDX and XRD studies. Hence, oak acorn cap is a natural material, it has been seen that it can be used in sources that may be drinking water and success has been achieved.
