Scholarcy highlights

  • This work exclusively confers theoretical insight into ultrafiltration of heavy metal ions from aqueous solution using sericin biopolymer
  • Effect of metal concentration and sericin dose on R% and J was evaluated
  • Sericin-chelated metal ions are retained by pores of membrane when the aqueous solution is subjected to pass through membrane on account of their enhanced size
  • Greater contact time between metals and sericin enhanced R% followed by reciprocal trend of J in batch experiment
  • Basic pH helps to increase R% values of metal ions in sericin supported ultrafiltration study
