9. TITLE OF THE PROJECT- “ Studies on ion exchange properties of natural polymeric substances useful in purification of industrial waste to reduce water pollution” .
10. OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT-To reduce water pollution in industrial area with low cost freely available polymeric substances ie. Barks.
11. WHETHER OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIVED (GIVE DETAILED)- Yes , by using Ficus regiosa (pipal tree) and Pithecolobium (Viliti Imli) barks , the toxic concentrations of Cu++ , Ni++ , and Co++ was reduced.
12ACHIVEMENTS FROM THE PROJECT – Toxicity of Cu++ , NI++ and Co++ concentrations were reduced by using ion exchange properties of natural polymeric substances like Ficus regiosa (pipal tree) and Pithecolobium (Viliti Imli) barks .
13.SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS- The over all performance of the modified bark substances as an adsorbent for the removal of heavy metals and organic pollutants has been found to be satisfactory . The adsorbent were prepared from Ficus regiosa (pipal tree) and Pithecolobium (Viliti Imli) bark materials seems to be offer inexpensive and alternative commercial ion exchange resins.Hrer following effects were studies on the ion exchange properties of these resins.
1) Effect of PH – The maximum recovery of Cu++ , Co++ ion concentrations were occure at PH =6
2) Effect of temperature – The removal of toxic metal ions were decreases with increase in temperature .
3) Effect of contact time – The toxic metal ions removal value was remain constant after the time of 30 min.
14.CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY – Society can use the natural polymeric substances like Ficus regiosa (pipal tree) and Pithecolobium (Viliti Imli) barks for removal of toxic Cu++ , NI++ and Co++ concentrations from near by industrial waste water .
