Abstract

The presence manuscript conducted on lead removal from industrial wastewater using an emulsion liquid membrane method (ELM). The developed ELM consisted of ionic liquid 1-Methyl-3-octylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([OMIM]PF6) in membrane phase is used as a stabilizer to provide sufficient stability of emulsion. Other ingredients for emulsion preparation are solvents (kerosene), surfactant (Span 80), extractant [di-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (D2EHPA)], and sulfuric acid (H2SO4) as an internal receiving phase. Recently, experiments investigated the parameters' effects on % removal of lead(II) and ELM techniques such as homogenous speed, surfactant and extractant concentrations, internal to membrane phase ratios, agitation speed, treated ratios, pH of external phase, and ([OMIM]PF6) concentrations. At the best conditions, results showed the stabilizing effect of ionic liquid and nanoparticles was sufficient enough for % removal of lead(II) during the first five minutes of the extraction process of therapeutic studies with low turbidity and swelling at the end of experiment.

Biography

Jasmine is a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering from Barry, IL. While attending S&T, she has gained experience from internships at BASF as a production engineering intern and various part-time jobs held while at school. These experiences have strengthened several skills including those in VBA, Matlab, communication, and leadership. Her goal with undergraduate research is to gain useful experience with wastewater extraction methods, while applying content learned in the classroom.
