The aim of this project was to produce calcium alginate beads with graphene oxide incorporated into the structure, in order to enhance the adsorption properties. The effects of initial concentration, adsorbent dose, pH, temperature, contact time were investigated. Adsorption kinetics and isotherms were evaluated with different models such as pseudo-first-order, pseudo-second-order,...
