The removal of Sr (II) from aqueous solution using orange peel (OP) and chemically modified ones with NaOH (NaOP) and KCl (KOP) was studied at varying pH, solid/liquid ratio, contact time, temperature range of (20-60ºC). Adsorption equilibrium was established in about 1h and the equilibrium data was analyzed using Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and Dubinin-Radushkevich adsorption isotherms. Langmuir model provided the best correlation for the adsorption of Sr(II) by the three adsorbents (OP, NaOP and KOP), and the mono-layer adsorption capacity for Sr(II) removal are 12.64, 54.94 and 52.36 for OP, NaOP and KOP mg/g, respectively. The adsorption kinetics followed the pseudo-second order kinetics model and thermodynamic studies showed the spontaneous and exothermic nature of the adsorption of Sr(II) by OP, NaOP and KOP. The present study emphasized that the chemically treated orange peel exhibited a high potential for the removal of strontium (II) from aqueous solution.

Keywords: Strontium, adsorption, isotherm, orange peel

    Julie: What is H&G? I’ve been hearing that it has stopped also, but I have no clue what it was!If I find anything, I’ll let you know, but by talking with Etsy friends, there’s pretty much nothing quite like Blueprint out there…Maybe I’ll go check on mags on Etsy, perhaps there’s a special short scale mag to be discovered! :)Julia: en effet, on s’en fou du mariage machin! hihih!

    Items let you guys iin on the secret alright? We have only started playing this kind
    of epic android game named Shadow Fight 2 a feew days and nights ago and I'm currently ahead of my good friend!

    Do you want to recognize how? I found a site which offers free equipment
    that you can download and make use of. These tools can create unlimiged gems and
