Abstract: By using low-cost methods and materials, the removal of toxic metals from wastewater samples is a practical approach especially for large-scale applications. Fungi are abundantly available biomaterials and can be used as efficient biosorbents. In this sense, an interesting type of macrofungus, Cortinarius armillatus (C. armillatus) was used for removal of Al(III) ions from aqueous solution. The sorption of Al(III) ions onto the surface of the biosorbent was investigated by FT-IR spectroscopy and the SEM techni…
