Abstract

In this study the dyes used are Basic fuchsin and Methylene blue. The adsorption was studied in relation to the metal in the ferrite, time of exposure and dye concentration. The highest adsorbtion capacity was observed for MgFe2O4 at a dye concentration of 0.06 mM, adsorption percent of 88% in 3 hours. Desorption was also studied by redispersion in ethanol. The main adsorption mechanism is thought to be through electrostatic interaction, mainly due to surfactant groups present on the nanoparticles. The nanoparticles have ferromagnetic behavior under magnetic field which allows for effective separation.
