In this paper, MIL-53(Al) was synthesized by solvothermal method and its application as an adsorbent to remove rhodamine B from aqueous solution. The material was characterized using X-ray diffraction, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms, and scanning electron microscopy. The results show that the material has a large specific surface area (1028.3 m2/g). The rhodamine B adsorption on MIL-53(Al) occurs very quickly in the first minutes of contact. Two pseudo-first order and pseudo-second order adsorption kinetic models, and two adsorption isotherm models, including Langmuir and Freundlich, were used to analyze the adsorption data.
Investigating the characteristics of the three-step sorption of Sc on armchair silicene nanoribbons is the aim of this study. Since absorbed energy is the largest of the bridge, hollow, valley, and top positions, the hollow position is selected first. The structural state of the second step has an energy of adsorption of 4.18 Å and a bond length of 2.36 Å for Si-Si. Finally, ASiNRs with a high Sc atom had their 1.25 Å surface modified. Adsorbed ASiNRs resulted in new materials with semi-metal and magnetic characteristics, suggesting potential use in spintronic and electronic devices in the future.

Vo Van On, Nguyen Duy Khanh, Nguyen Thanh Tung, Hoang Van Ngoc and Huynh Thi Phuong Thuy
In the paper, we investigate the structure and electronic properties of the pristine germanene nanoribbon and four adsorption configurations of 1F and 2F on the substrate of germanene nanoribbon. We obtained the parameters of the most stable structures of pristine germanene nanoribbon and four adsorption configurations. The band structure and the density of state and the part density of state for each element were also obtained. Findings show the adsorption configuration of 1F-GeNR.bridge has no band structure, while other configurations are semimetals with band gap from 0.175eV to 0.67eV; both four adsorption configurations are chemisorption and non-magnetic. The charge distribution of all configurations also was investigated; it showed that there is a charge shift from Ge atoms towards F atoms due to their electronegativity difference.
Applying first-principles calculations, the investigation of the geometrical and electronic properties of Pr adsorption armchair silicene nanoribbons structure has been established. The results show that the bandgap doped Pr has been changed, which is the case for chemical adsorption on the surface of ASiNRs; this material became metallic with the peak of valance band contact fermi level. Moreover, the survey to find the optimal height 1.82 Å of Pr and 2.24 Å bond length Si-Si, and Si-Si-Si bond angle 108005’, energy adsorption is -7.65 eV, buckling is 0.43 Å with structure stability close to the pristine case, has brought good results for actively creating newly applied materials for the spintronic and optoelectronics field in the future.
Heavy metal pollution is a major problems in the environment. The impact of toxic metal ions can be minimized by different technologies, viz., chemical precipitation, membrane filtration, oxidation, reverse osmosis, flotation and adsorption. But among them, adsorption was found to be very efficient and common due to the low concentration of metal uptake and economically feasible properties. In this review paper, Fe–Mn binary oxide incorporated into diatomite (Fe/Mn-diatomite) was prepared by a simple coating method , and removal of Cu(II) from aqueous solutions. The effects of three independent variables including initial ion concentration, removal time, and adsorbent dosage were investigated on the maximum adsorption of Cu (II). The optimum conditions for the adsorption of Cu(II) was obtained: 75 ppm of initial ion concentration, 150 min of removal time and 1.5 g/l of adsorbent. The maximum removal efficiencies of Cu(II) was obtained 86.25%. The results showed that Fe/Mn-diatomite was apable of treating copper metal in wastewater.
Environmental issues such as the wastewater have influenced each aspect of our lives. For human and environmental health protection, it is necessary to remove excess zinc in industrial wastewaters before discharging them to environment. Modified diatomite displayed larger surface area and pore volumes in comparison with untreated natural diatomite, which favored heavy metals sorption behavior. In this study, the removal of Zn(II) ions from aqueous solution was studied using Fe/Mn modified diatomite sample at different adsorption parameters such as contact initial metal ions concentration, dosage of Fe/Mn-Diatomite and ionic strength Na2CO3 on ionic Zn2+ adsorption capacity of diatomite modified. The residual zinc concentration in the solution was determined using flame atomic absorption spectroscopy. The results showed that: the gravitational increase increases with increasing time and then becomes almost stable, with 120 minutes timeliness; absorption increases when Fe/Mn-Ditomite is increased, absorption reaches 89.48% at a dose of 1.5 g/l; additional different concentrations Na2CO3 ranged from 0 ppm to 80 ppm the results showed that performance treatment Zn2+ of correspond 94,85%. This study could lay an essential foundation to develop modified diatomite for heavy metal removal from wastewater.
