|Title:||Adsorption and preconcentration of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid on a chemically modified silica gel surface|
|Abstract:||The herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), chemically anchored to a silica gel surface, was used to adsorb and preconcentrate the same herbicide from aqueous solutions at room temperature. From a series of adsorption isotherms adjusted to a modified Langmuir equation, the maximum number of moles adsorbed was calculated as 4.67x10(-5) mol g(-1), with the highest retention capacity at pH 5. This modified silica gel was used in a column for preconcentrating trace levels of 2,4-D. The preconcentrated herbicide can be directly eluted with methanol with a recovery efficiency higher than 97%. The concentration factor was 8.33.|
