Microfiltration/ultrafiltration polyamide-6 membranes for copper removal from aqueous solutions
El-Gendi, Ayman; Ali, Sahar; Abdalla, Heba; Saied, Marwa;
Microfiltration/ultrafiltration (MF/UF) Adsorptive polyamide-6 (PA-6) membranes were prepared using wet phase inversion process. The prepared PA-6 membranes are characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), porosity and swelling degree. In this study, the membranes performance has examined by adsorptive removal of copper ions from aqueous solutions in a batch adsorption mode. The membranes display sponge like and highly porous structures, with porosities of 41-73%. Under the conditions examined, the adsorption experiments have showed that the membranes had a good adsorption capacity (up to 120-280 mg/g at the initial copper ion concentration ()
