Abstract

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility of Granular Ferric Hydroxide (GFH) for bromate removal from water. Batch experiments were performed to study the influence of various experimental parameters such as effect of contact time, temperature and effect of competing anions on bromate removal by GFH. The adsorption kinetics data indicate that uptake rate of bromate was rapid in the beginning and 75% adsorption was completed in 5 min and equilibrium was achieved within 20 min. The adsorption data conform best to the Langmuir model. Results of the present study suggest that GFH can be effectively utilized for bromate removal from drinking water.
