Modak, JM and Natarajan, KA (1995) Biosorption of metals using nonliving biomass - A review. In: Minerals And Metallurgical Processing, 12 (4). pp. 189-196.Full text not available from this repository.
A review of published literature on the biosorption of metals using nonliving biomass is presented. Factors such as pH, temperature, initial metal concentration, biomass loaning, the presence of co-ions and the pretreatment of biomass influence the metal uptake by biomass. Although few generalizations are possible, unified theor ies regarding the mechanism of uptake are not available. Therefore, the above aspects of metal biosorption have to be defined individually for each biomass and metal-ion pair.
