Cadmium Uptake by Hydroxyapatite Synthesized in Different Conditions and Submitted to Thermal Treatment

The results showed that the maximum sorption capacity decreased from 0.631 mmol g-1 for the noncalcined sample to 0.150 mmol g-1 for the one calcined at 900 °C

Scholarcy highlights

  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • This paper intends to evaluate the uptake of cadmium ions from aqueous solution by 21 hydroxyapatite samples which have been synthesized in different conditions
  • Cd2+ sorption is controlled by sample BET surface area, which shows a direct dependence on the hydroxyapatite crystallite dimensions
  • The results showed that the maximum sorption capacity decreased from 0.631 mmol g-1 for the noncalcined sample to 0.150 mmol g-1 for the one calcined at 900 °C
  • This drop in the sorption capacity could be explained by a reduction in its specific surface area, which is induced by the increase of the crystal size
