In this study, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) coated magnetite modified with 2, 4-Dinitrophenylhydrazine was used to remove Cr (VI) ions from aqueous solution. The modified magnetite nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and SEM–EDXS measurement. The ... read more
