Scholarcy highlights

  • Pharmaceutical and personal care products have received increasing more attention worldwide
  • The present study aimed to investigate the application of magnetic gelatin modified peanut shell biochar as an environmentally friendly adsorbent for the removal of sodium diclofenac in the aqueous phase
  • Batch adsorption experiment showed that PBG performed very high DCF adsorption capacity
  • The adsorption capacity was significantly affected by pH solution with a decrease trend when pH >6
  • The adsorption capacity of the PBG adsorbent remained at 71.5% even after five cycles of regeneration, which demonstrated the stability and reusability for further removal of DCF
  • Considering the simple fabrication approach and the excellent adsorption performance, the PBG adsorbent can be evaluated as a potential material for environmental remediation applications
