A series of ion-exchange batch equilibrium experiments were undertaken with laboratory solutions spiked with heavy metals to investigate the removal of these metals by Amberlite IRC748 at variable salinity and temperature. Spreadsheet 1 contains sample ID descriptions for experiments at 20 degrees celsius and spreadsheet 2 contains sample ID descriptions for experiments at 4 degrees celsius. ... Spreadsheets 3,4,5 contain the raw data for the batch experiments.
Some terms and abbreviations used in these datasets are:
LR - low range
MR - mid range
Corr - corrected for drift
QC - in-house spiked standard (multicomponent metals)
Rinse - de-ionised water rinse through ICP-MS to check for contamination or carryover NIST - NIST standard 1640: trace metal water standard (NIST stands for National Institue of Standards and Technology) Ref Values - expected values from analysis of the NIST standard DilBlk - dilution blank
Concentration AVG - average concentration (of three readings)
This work was carried out as part of ASAC project 1300 (ASAC_1300) - Development and application of technologies for the removal of heavy-metal contaminants from run-off associated with abandoned waste disposal sites.
