Abstract:Heavy metal contamination of waters and soils is particularly dangerous to the living organisms. Different studies have demonstrated that hydroxyapatite has a high removal capacity for divalent heavy metal ions in contaminated waters and soils. The removal of Cd from aqueous solutions by hydroxyapatite was investigated in batch conditions at 25+/-2 degrees C. Cadmium was applied both as single- or multi-metal (Cd + Pb + Zn + Cu) systems with initial concentrations from 0 to 8 mmol L(-1). The adsorption capacit…
