|Title:||A useful organofunctionalized layered silicate for textile dye removal|
|Abstract:||The octosilicate Na-RUB-18 has the ability to exchange its original sodium with cetyltrimethylammonium cations. This procedure leads to interlayer space expansion, with the aim of obtaining inorganic-organic nanostructured hybrids by chemical modification reactions. The silylating agent 3-trimethoxysilylpropylurea was attached to the inorganic layer using heterogeneous methodology. The new organofunctionalized material was characterized by elemental analysis, X-ray diffraction, (13)C and (29)Si nuclear magnetic resonances in the solid state, infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetry and scanning electron microscopy. The amount of silylating agent immobilized on surface was 2.03 mmol g(-1), with a basal distance of 2.43 nm. Nuclear magnetic resonance of (13)C and (29)Si nuclei evidenced covalent bond formation between organosilyl and silanol groups at the surface. The new synthesized nanostructured layered material was able to remove the textile dye Reactive Black 5 from aqueous solution, followed through a batchwise process. The effects of stirring time, adsorbent dosage and pH on the adsorption capacity demonstrated that 150 min is enough to reach equilibrium at 298 +/- 1 K at pH 3.0. Based on error function values the data were best fitted to fractional-order kinetic models and compared to pseudo-first-order, pseudo-second-order and chemisorption kinetic models. The equilibrium data were better fitted to the Sips isotherm models. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
