Abstract

The produced nACP was evaluated by using XRD, Received in revised form 12 July 2017 FTIR, SEM and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The sedimentation test demonstrated that nACP Accepted 15 August 2017 exhibited better stability than crystallized hydroxyapatite. The adsorption efficiency of the nACP mate- Available online 19 August 2017 rial for aqueous humic acid (HA) was evaluated from the point of view of medium pH, adsorption time, temperature, and ionic strength, as well as the presences of metal ions. The results of the study showed Keywords: very good adsorption performance towards aqueous HA. The Sips modeling results revealed that the Nano-amorphous calcium phosphate stabilized nACP adsorbent had a considerably high adsorption capacity (248.3 mg/g) for HA at 298 K. The Stabilized adsorbent adsorption data fitted well into pseudo-second order and Elovich kinetic models.
