This paper reports the removal of Cadmium ions from aqueous solutions using nanochitosan(NC)/carboxymethyl cellulose(CMC) blend. Effect of various process parameters, viz., initial metal ion concentration, pH, and adsorbent dose has been studied for the removal of Cadmium. The adsorption data have been explained in terms of Langmuir and Freundlich equations. The results revealed that the adsorptions of Cadmium onto NC/CMC blend, was found to fit well with the Freundlich isotherm. The results indicate that under the optimum conditions, the NC/CMC blend was found as an effective adsorbent for cadmium.
