    Abstract: 2,4-Dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) and 2,6-dichlorophenol (2,6-DCP) are two isomers of dichlorophenols, have been used as preservative agents for wood, paints, vegetable fibers and as intermediates in the production of pharmaceuticals and dyes. The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of biofield energy treatment on the isotopic abundance ratios o... Show More

    Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate the efficiency of metals (Pb, Cd and Co) removal from oil spill water using the soursop (Annonamuricata) peels as adsorbent. Batch adsorption experiment was conducted as a function of pH, contact time, adsorbent dosage and particle size. Optimum pH of removal obtained for Pb, Cd and Co ions were 6, 6 and 4 res... Show More
