Formatted abstract
The capability of durian shell waste biomass as a novel and potential biosorbent for Cr(VI) removal from synthetic wastewater was studied. The adsorption study was performed in batch mode at different temperatures and pH. Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models fit the equilibrium data very well (R2 > 0.99). The maximum biosorption capacity of durian shell was 117 mg/g. On modeling its kinetic experimental data, the pseudo-first order prevails over the pseudo-second order model. Thermodynamically,
the characteristic of Cr-biosorption process onto durian shell surface was spontaneous, irreversible and endothermic.
