Biochar microparticles obtained through Diclofenac grinding were evaluated for the removal of emerging contaminant diclofenac (DCF) and the underlying me- Adsorption chanism were thoroughly studied. Characterization of biochar was carried out using particle size analyzer, SEM, Biochar BET, FT-IR, XRD, XPS and zeta potential instrument. Pig manure biochar (BC-PM) exhibited excellent removal Interface chemistry −1 eﬃciency (99.6%) over pine wood biochar (BC-PW) at 500 µg L of DCF (environmentally signiﬁcant con- Thermodynamics centration). Intraparticle diﬀusion was found to be the major process facilitated the adsorption. BC-PW followed Mechanisms pseudo ﬁrst-order
