Impact/Purpose:

This work explored the options of using granular activated carbon (GAC) and bimetallic (Fe/Pd) nanoparticle loaded activated carbon (Fe/Pd/GAC) to amend the conventional capping to improve its effectiveness in removing persistance organic pollutants.

Description:

Adsorption of benzene, chlorobenzene, and naphthalene on commercially available granular activated carbon (GAC) and bimetallic nanoparticle (Fe/Pd) loaded GAC was investigated for the potential use in active capping of contaminated sediments. Freundlich and Langmuir linearizations were both applied to this data, and it was found that the Freundlich model most closely fits the experimental data. Based on Freundlich parameters, the effective partitioning coefficients (L kg-1) taking into account KF and n were calculated to be 2.97×106 and 8.25×105 for benzene and chlorobenzene, respectively, on GAC. In addition, effective partitioning coefficients (L kg-1) were 650, 5640, and 1.91×105 for benzene, chlorobenzene, and naphthalene, respectively on Fe/Pd/GAC. Values of log KF ( (µg/kg)/(µg/L)n) were 6.11, 7.11, and 7.54 for benzene, chlorobenzene and naphthalene, respectively for GAC and 4.53, 5.47 and 5.22, respectively for Fe/Pd/GAC.
