Biosorption of arsenic and cadmium from aqueous solutions

S Cernansky, M Urík, J Ševc, P Littera, E Hiller

Abstract


The biosorption of cadmium and arsenic from aqueous solutions onto the unmodified compact biomass of microscopic filamentous fungus Aspergillus clavatus DESM. was studied in the concentration
range of 0.25 – 100 mg.l-1. The experimental biosorption results for arsenic and cadmium followed well the Freundlich equilibrium sorption model.
