Nano Sized Cobalt Oxide as Adsorbent for Pb(II) Ions
Anil Kodge, Arunkumar Lagashetty*

Metal oxide nanomaterials are synthesized by combustion route is attracted by researcher due to its simple experimentation, which integrates the materials chemistry. Nanosized cobalt oxide is prepared by combustion route using polymer as a fuel. Adsorption studies of lead ions on as prepared cobalt oxide sample is undertaken. Dynamic method is adopted for the adsorption study of lead ions on the cobalt oxide sample. The results obtained show that, the cobalt oxide acts as a very good adsorbent for heavy lead ions. Lead adsorbed cobalt oxide sample was well characterized for its structure by employing powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) tool. The morphology of adsorbate material was studied by Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) tool. Fourier Transform infrared (FTIR) spectral study was undertaken to know the bonding nature in the cobalt oxide sample. EDX analysis is undertaken to know the presence of adsorbed lead on cobalt oxide adsorbent. Solution conductivity study and Atomic absorption study is also undertaken for better confirmation of the adsorption behaviour.
