SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF THIOL-FUNCTIONALIZED METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS OF COPPER DIPICOLLINIC ACID AND THE COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THEIR HEAVY METALS ADSORTION

SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF THIOL-FUNCTIONALIZED METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS OF COPPER DIPICOLLINIC ACID AND THE COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THEIR HEAVY METALS ADSORPTION ABSTRACT The metal-organic framework (MOF) of copper and Pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid (Dipicolinic acid) was synthesized using reflux method with water and methanol as solvents. The MOF of Copper was further functionalized with an S-donor (thioglycolic acid). […]

EVALUATION OF HEAVY METAL STATUS OF GROUND WATER AROUND KABAWA IN LOKOJA, NORTH CENTRAL, NIGERIA

EVALUATION OF HEAVY METAL STATUS OF GROUND WATER AROUND KABAWA IN LOKOJA, NORTH CENTRAL, NIGERIA ABSTRACT Water samples (three from boreholes and nine from hand dug wells) were obtained from around Kabawa, a settlement in Lokoja metropolis, North central Nigeria. The physical parameters analyzed showed that temperature ranged from 250C-300C. pH ranged from 3.11-7.88 which indicated that the […]
